I began my day by working on one of the collages in my Freedom Book.
Then, as I talked about in the video Jon took, I began working on a collage on a piece of muslin that I cut into three pieces each about 18″x18″.
I put a piece of canvas on my studio floor to work on. I like working on the floor. I started my first collage by drawing on the muslin with black marker.
The photo below is how it looks at the end of the day. The last thing I did was some thread drawing with my free-motion sewing machine. I think it’s done, but I’ll look at it again tomorrow and see if it wants anything else.
I have no idea what these collages are about or even my thought process when making them. They seem jam-packed to me like there’s so much going on. It worries me a little that it’s a reflection of what’s going on in my brain.
But I haven’t been able to simplify them. And maybe I don’t need to.
