Week #11

The theme for this week was Stars.   My favorite constellation is Orion.  I could see it from my bedroom window growing up.  I could see it in North Dakota, I could see it in England, and I can see it here in Massachusetts with all our light pollution.  I went looking for qoutes and inspiration and settled on the wiew from my childhood bed, a quote from Blade Runner and one from Vincent Van Gogh.

"The night is even more richly colored than the day. . . . If only one pays attention to it, one sees that certain stars are citron yellow, while others have a pink glow or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expiating on this theme, it should be clear that putting little white dots on a blue-black surface is not enough."  — Vincent van Gogh, Painter

Not sure if you can see it or not but I have some green, yellow and red stars.

Week 10 Journal 52

Art for a Cause - Or Why Do I Do Art.

   I was having trouble coming up with a firm idea on this.  I did think of Random Acts of Art right off, but didn't know how I wanted to portray it.   So I let the idea sit for awhile- well a week.  Then I was going through my junk mail and happened to browse through a colorful ad and found the perfect picture of a stack of rocks on a pebble beach.  So I tore it out and thought some more.  Here is my final page.  Also in the picture are 2 RAA's that will be left somewhere soon.
