I was still sorting through files when I stumbled across this piece. It is one of my first digital collages from back in 2003. It took me hours & hours to assemble it from photos and clip art using a very primitve photo editing program. I was so excited when it was finished I am sure I e-mailed it to every person in my address book! I still love the concept & title and I am pretty sure that if you could get a snapshot of the thoughts & ideas floating through my head it would be something similar to this. 🙂 I will brag a bit and tell you that when I entered this image in the state fair that summer I won the blue ribbon for computer art! Which shows how much computer art has progressed in the last six years…this seems so very basic anymore.
The current ideas & daydreams dancing in my head revolve around getting my new art studio space set up. I’ve been taking some photos of the progress, I will post them when the project is complete. I spent all day Friday sorting, packing and emptying the room followed by a weekend of painting. And more painting! My goodness it takes a long time when you are working around ten windows and a pair of french doors. I sure love the room full of sunlight but flat walls without windows are certainly faster to paint! In addition to those obstacles the room had hunter green trim (does that date it for you?) that had to have two coats of primer before we could even begin to paint. BUT, it is a beautiful, clean, bright white now! It will be over a week before the new carpet can be put in so we’ve got a bit of a lull in activity. I am in the midst of drawing up plans for the built in storage that I want to add (after the carpeting) and my head is spinning with room arrangements, furnishings and details. I want to keep it fairly open yet also want to put all my art supplies in there, have a space for doing both mixed media and digital work plus be able to use at least part of it for social gathering. It will be a balancing act! Now I am off to look at some furniture online…
Happy daydreams to you!
