whiter shades of pale
I just finished my 'white' chunky book page I made for a swap and here it is. It kind of looks like I've felt all week...a shade of pale.
I've been under the weather for the past week. I don't get sick very often, but I'm afraid this bug got me. It's been chilly here in LA and I've had my slippers on all week. Drinking enough tea that I'm surprised I haven't floated away. I've still been making art...but it's been slow going...just haven't felt the spark...however, today I turned a corner and I feel human again...
Surfing around and checking out my friends blogs is a good thing to do when you are feeling uninspired and out of sorts. I was thrilled to see Celine Navarro used one of my nest transparencies from the 'Cottage Garden Collection' in a piece of her artwork on the home page of her website. The three collections of Angela Cartwright artist papers, vellums and transparencies are available from Stampington & Company if you want to check them out... http://stampington.com/html/somerset_artistpapers_ac.html
Here's a piece I love that Sarah Fishburn made called 'Real Life' using several of the transparencies from the 'Casa Vista Collection.'
In 'Transparent Art' several artists used my transparencies in their art throughout the book. Did you know that's my photograph that Nina Bagley used in her art hanging on the cover of the book? Nina gave me this treasure and I hung it in a small window in my home that I pass everyday. I have really enjoyed discovering the many uses of transparencies and using them in my art...and it's a thrill to see my photography being used in other peoples art too.
Here's a piece I just finished with my angel transparency from the Stone Portals 3 sheet. I need an angel on my shoulder to catch up on everything now that I've lost the week...
Instead I have an angel at my feet...
