I'm trying to catch up. Remember my 5/5 ART CHALLENGE? This is DAY4 for DOOR. It was not as easy as I hoped because 90% of my art supplies were packed away and sent to storage. What was left? A magazine, a glue stick and a couple of Sharpies. So, I tried to build the door images out of cut up magazine pages with the corresponding colours. Which probably would have been fun if I had only picked one image instead of twelve frickin' doors. After getting started I quickly realized that it was TEDIOUS work and not all that fun sticking teeny little piece together. I don't care for things that are un-fun so I made short work of it and called it a day. The original is actually a little more becoming than the scan, but evenso.
What I DID really like was the collection of doors from DAY2, DAY3 and DAY4 when grouped together. That's my absolute favourite part about this kind of exercise. I am hoping to get these framed up to hang in a row. Plenty of folks have asked me if the originals are for sale and the best answer I can give is: not yet. I am working out sizes for prints of the line drawing and will get that posted this week.
I have one more piece in the 5/5 ART CHALLENGE, but I am tossing up a digital piece versus a piece done with Pilot's half eaten crayons. That's about all I've got left around here for now. Check out the FLICKR group for other peoples solutions.
BLOG REDESIGN IS IN THE WORKS.
LOVELIFE is currently down to be redesigned - look for a new launch in June 2010.
Today: I'm going to take the girls for a tour of the firehall to fill our super-adventure quota for the morning which will be fun (because the firehall is always fun) and it should balance out the boring-ness of getting groceries and wandering around Home Depot. I will be carting around my camera very stylishly in my Epiphanie camera bag because there are no shortage of cool things to photograph when surrounded by heroes. Seriously. How can it be Thursday already?
