hi Geninne~ thanks for sharing this, I believe it is important for all people to see that artists do not just sit down and magically (easily) create. Often times on studio visits I show people the art pieces that did not make the final cut. I have an extremely critical eye & only display pieces I Feel 110% positive about. best wishes*
i once threw away a piece i did in college. oh i wish i had not done that so my kids could see it. my professor had liked it and took a slide of it (dating myself, eh). that is all I have...by the way it was not as good as the little blue bird...who really does look like he wants to land on that rock. can I have your trash? :)
It looks like an image from a very sophisticated game of paper, scissors, stone - where obviously here the paper wins by wrapping up the stone - I think you have been rather strict on yourself - what was it you didn't like?
it's always such a pleasure to visit your blog... your journal collection is absolutely fantastic! I can only imagine how beautiful they all are on the INSIDE!! Your work always has me drooling (and coming back for more). :-) Thank you so much for sharing. xoxo
Have you used copic markers on other works? Usually the copics are used to make manga drawings. I am really curious on how you work with them. It is a bit difficult to see on that crumbeled piece (allthough it looks beautiful!)
Dear Geninne, I have said this before, and i will say it again (since i can't get tired of expressing it) your work is literally soothing! I feel like you are able to transport people to other states of mind!
Before I ramble, I would just like to say that I have Awarded you the Versatile blogger award and, as the VBA rules state, I have shared your blog with my small world on blogger :D
Kill your darlings!! (is what we hear in art school all the time, so I guess it is something important) There is nothing wrong with being critical about your work. I think I would find that very difficult without my fellow students (and friends) around to give me a critique now and then.. My non-art school- friends think everything I make is fantastic.. Which is nice, but not always helpful ;)
I can see why you tossed it Geninne, because it is definitely more "plastic" looking than your usual pieces without the depth and personality of your watercolors. I know that after working on this it was still hard to toss, even after looking at it a second time. I always think that I "can use it for something else." Still, I applaude your experimenting with new media. Sorry it didn't work out this time. Hugs from Alaska.
