Last weekend, I laid out twenty or so potential collages to be made from assorted prints, remnants of prints, embellished papers and ephemera. This weekend, I've managed to finalize these three and a couple more. (These are spare, on creamy art paper -- not greyish at all -- and some of the fine graphite and ink has not been fully captured in the scans.)
Yesterday, I gave up a potential afternoon in the studio to go watch our neighbor's son play his final game as the hometown quarterback at Portland State University. There was a chill in the air, and my husband and I were "on the fence" as to whether to go or not....all things considered (which translates into "Gee, it would be great to go and support him, but there are just too many things to do in too little time.") We were glad we chose to go. It was great to drop down into the city, just ten minutes away, and take the brisk walk to the outdoor stadium. Before the game, the seniors and their families were honored on the center of the field; a bittersweet moment, to be sure. We've watched this young man and his equally talented older brother practice ball in their backyard and play assorted sports since they were in middle school.
It is gorgeous today. Time to stop and head out to assist my husband with a major leaf clean-up. (Just in time for the next couple of storms that are scheduled to blow in at the beginning of the week.)
Hope you've had an enjoyable weekend with a little time for creativity!
Thank you for stopping by!
