I had the brilliant idea to paint a series of 36 inkblots which are actually famous beauties throughout history. These will be arranged on a 4' x 4' black canvas, six across and six down--a play on the 6 by 6 concept.
I have included a link to the postcard I am making which will identify each of the lovelies, just in case viewers have trouble recognizing them. (I think if you click on the card, it will open in a larger format.)
Note the tension that results when Ann Margret gets too close to Liz Taylor! (Sorry. Couldn't resist this touch of humor.)
But I would like our writing group to consider the impact words have on their neighbors...
I am also working on a very large canvas (5' x 5') which was inspired by some old Japanese magazine covers I stumbled across this week online.
I have altered the image significantly, playing with the limited color palette and the subtle differences between the flat colored areas and the delicately shaded areas.
And if I manipulate the image like I did the inkblots...
