four canvases starting out ....

this is my studio space .... two of my kids are at basketball camp this morning ... and the other was happy to sit with my in my studio and do her "own work" ..... i unpacked some canvases that i had ordered a while back so that i didn't have huge boxes sitting in the middle of the walk around space ..... i then finished one small piece that i had started earlier in the week ..... i had four more six inch canvases with great backgrounds ... ready for work ...or foregrounds ...or completion.... but, nope .... i wasn't feeling it! so .... i got out four more canvases, a map of florida, and did some backgrounds ..... while afixing the maps to the canvas, i though about what they should become .... i haven't really been doing more than paper collages lately .... i haven't been using what i call "chunky ephemera" .... the collage materials with some heft .... keys, bottlecaps, marbles, game pieces .... so ..... i decided to do landscapes ....hence, the sky and grass you see on the four canvases ..... and i'm going to do flowers ... chunky flowers ... not sure exactly, just vaguely .... but, it's a plan .... next i'll add some lettering or stamping to the backgrounds .... i'll get the backgrounds built up a bit more before i have to figure out the flower plan .... i need to decide if i'll do four very different pieces or make them more of a set ...... lots to think about!

 

roll your mouse over the pic and you can see all kinds of tags that identify some of the studio chaos ..... making it less chaotic if you know what it is!!
