I wish the image were more defined. As I have mentioned before, the drawback to working larger is that I don't have the capacity to scan these pieces.
This one measures 18"x 24".
I would like my next investment to be a really good camera. It would be nice for each piece to be photographed in a setting, or hanging on my wall. They need to be featured, I think the flat scanned images are beginning to be a little boring. I am also thinking that a camera would help me capture some useful inspiration... See now... I am certain to talk myself into it...
I have had the background of this piece done for a very long time. I had chosen the photo, had the idea in my head, but let it rest for quite some time. My work has been focussed on large pieces, and honestly, I haven't found much motivation to work small... I have big big ideas right? I needed to remind myself that sometimes sweetness comes in small packages...
And as my boyfriend well stated: "People need to realize that each of your pieces represents a moment in your life. These moments could have occurred at any given time."
And to elaborate on his words: These moments were most likely brief, but a few may have been not so brief.
Junctures in my life that have been documented through writings and sketches so I would not forget.
They wait for the perfect photograph, or surface. They wait patiently for precious time found in the studio where I will revisit these glimpses when preparing to begin a new piece.
My point is that many times you are looking into a little window from a past moment in my life. It could have been days, months, even years in some cases, but in most it is a significant twinkle that has passed. No worries.
This piece measures 9" x 30" x 1.5". I wish it were a better scan. Scanned in 3 sections and put together in software, makes for a less than perfect result.
This piece measures 18"x18". I borrowed words from Snow Patrol. If you haven't listened to them you should. They are the masters of the love song. "Those three words are said too much, they are not enough"
