I am awaiting an order of beads. I love to browse for them, envisioning how I will design them. My mind sees how they will hang on the ears alongside the neck, or how they will work as a pendant, choker or necklace. Then it goes to what outfits would go well with the jewelry they design.
But, while awaiting the beads to create new designs in my jewelry, there are unfinished artworks in which I should complete. I have 10 pieces that are from 5 inches by 5 1/2 inches to 5 3/4 inches to 5 3/4 inches in size. Its in the first stage, preliminarily painted and collaged.
Then there is the other three in the third stage. Preliminarily painted, stenciled (using paint), collaged and then additional “stamping” using bubble-wrap.
Oh and let’s not forget, that second of the Queens series. Only took four years to continue it. “Queen Rose” is still in the conceptual stage. I finally photographed a rose to use, but cannot decide how to begin.
A blank canvas. A set of photographs of the rose. Maybe next is to imagine a scenario…what would the rose heal? Why would it be the answer the healing guides would give? What would it look like as a healing herb of the spirits? Now to meditate on this concept!
Meanwhile, paint the next layer on the series of three. Add a layer of paint to the 10 works that were begun months ago… await my order of beads.
