Some Older Work Revisited...........

"There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Fernando".  Can't get that song off my mind today.  I was walking to ABBA again this morning.   I'm not really into oldies but I do enjoy their songs. 

Anyway that is not where I was going to go today.  I was going thru some older work I had packed up when I moved to Vancouver and hadn't looked at since moving.  It's enlighting to look back at your work and see the difference between now and a few years ago.  It brings back that excitment I felt when I did the work.  The colors were more vibrant then my more recent collages.  Of course I did a lot more larger pieces then too. 

The reds were redder and the oranges brighter, I may have been using a different brand of paint at the time.  Or maybe is was the "Paxil" years.  I was searching for anything that made me feel anything and the color really motivated me.  I've also expanded my purchases of special hand made papers.  I find them in so many more places now and so many more unique pieces that tend to be a little more natural/earthy colors.  One of these days I'm going to have to try making my own paper. 

I experimented alot too, as with the square pieces at left. 

But bigger and lots of color gave me lots of space to express what I was feeling.  If you notice I always went off the paper, no boundries.  After 27 years of marriage I was headed in new directions, I just wasn't sure which way yet. 

Maybe I'll put these on Etsy.  Still havn't got it set up yet.  Soon.

Back Soon.
