Day 23 of 50: Leaving the paint behind

The car is packed. The bikes are on the roof. The maps have been printed.

Today I spent some time playing with paint (and collage), since I am not going to see any for the next 12 days.

I am bringing my Micron pens, InkTense blocks, watercolor pencils, and watercolor box set with some water brushes on my trip into the Sierras.

So I enjoyed making these today:

SoulCollage - I am the one whose eyes sparkle with story, depth, and wonder. I am the one who looks in many directions.

Kept going with the extra paint from many past sessions, adding charcoal and pastel too.

Really, really enjoyed going with a bigger format (9″x12″) after so much 6″x6″ work! I keep rediscovering that the movement, the gesture, and the feeling between my body and the medium are so important to my creative experience.

Inspired by the collage, I made an outline of a woman to be continued when I get back...

Back to 6″x6″ and wondering about cheesecloth after last night’s spontaneous dragon…

I have no idea if I’ll be able to post at all for the next 12 days…likely not, since there is barely any cell phone coverage, let alone internet. It’ll be just me and the trees (and the bears and the creeks and the falls and the mountains and the sky and the silence).

Ciao!
