I'm going back to work on my newest art pieces this weekend. I have a few weeks without any book production to do, so I'm really looking forward to getting back to my art. These are the eight cardboard quilts I started a couple of weeks ago. They're all completely 'cured' now and I can start their next layes, which will consist of a lot more painting before I think about adding images to them. I had 300 printouts made this week for possible use on these, all culled from the images I create for this blog—my flowers, my collections, landscapes etc.
First up, I'm going to create as many new "blanks" as I can with the remaining cardboard squares, so I know how many pieces will be in this series. I think I can make another 10-15, which would mean I'll be working more than 20 pieces at once, the way I like it. With my layering process, I can only go so far on one piece at some point before I have to stop and let it dry completely, and rather than just stopping for good that day, or night, I like to be able to move on to the next piece, and the next piece after that. Just like when I'm working on a book, or my blog, I like to work until the minute I lie down to go to sleep. I have the TV on all the time, to keep up with the news (and my soaps!), but I can't remember the last time I actually just sat down and watched a program without doing something else at the same time. I think my middle name should be 'Multi-tasker,' lol.
