Nothing terribly exciting to report for today...mostly errands and prep work for the Animal People collages. I like to add unrelated lines of text from various sources to the collages and I am going through notebooks tonight and pulling text and phrases and hand printing them as I go along so that I can read them later when I am ready for them.
|My current phrases notebook that is just about full. I must have at least twenty notebooks around the house jam packed with various quotes, bits of conversation, misheard lines from television, lyrics, etc.|
|Wow -- that typed stack is from my old rubber stamp company. I made rubber stamps out of a lot of those phrases. This will be fun to go through...old stuff might be new again.|
When I came into the studio to look for a few more text notebooks I started uncovering things in messy stacks on the shelves...so I tidied/tossed out as I went through them. This is also the time of year when I gather up unframed artwork of various types to put into the what-should-I-get-framed-next collection. My sister usually gives me a framing gift certificate for my birthday and it has been on my mind for a few days because she asked what I'd like. So...some art was "found" and shelves were tidied tonight, too.
