We're getting ready for our trip south to Arizona for the winter and most of my winter shows are behind me now. I'm taking time to play in the studio as my inventory in the bead department is adequate for now. I'll be starting up again with production when we get down to my Bisbee studio.
I'm not sure if some of these ACEO's are complete but I'm building them up in layers and assessing them to see if they have a finished feeling to me.
I have been holding on to a wonderful old Japanese knitting machine book for perhaps the early 80's that show sample swatches of finished patterns. They're bold and bright and made for a good background. It's fun grabbing snippets of random text from old books and out of context they become more enigmatic paired with the images.
Some of the images magically pair themselves up on my table like the giraffe and hip socket much to my own delight. The 1912 book of cattle diseases becomes an inspiration.
This is my second series of ACEO's fresh off the press this week.
Excellent collaborative matching of the different images in each piece.ReplyDelete
