Patti Edmon Altered Attic

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

I wonder if anyone else gets bogged down in a color rut... So often it's the faves that end up on the surface - blue-greens, yellow-golds, purples... I've been experimenting with an extended palette, using colors that I ordinarily steer away from and trying to incorporate a wider variety of 'stuff' into pieces. Having more fun, getting carried away, traveling into that inner zone where the muse can hide now and then. Thanks to Seth at The Altered Page, I'm finding and rediscovering so many art blogs - such inspiration!

My scanner isn't working and photographing pieces with glare issues doesn't present the best image, but for now it will have to do! I love making journals and the gallery wants canvases. Don't get me wrong, I'm so grateful to even be represented!! But it can be intimidating so I pretend that I'm working on a journal cover - what's that about? Somehow I have more freedom with journals than canvas, though it's obviously a mind thing. I'd be really interested to hear about your tools for stretching (aside from canvas:).

i love your new piece, patti, and that you're playing with new colors -- i've been doing that too lately as i'm doing a collaboration with miss jill, who is so bright and colorful.

if you pretend your canvas is a journal cover, maybe you won't feel intimidated. i have (finally) developed a mute button for the voices in my head so maybe you could also just try ignoring the thoughts that make you feel intimidated... because you ROCK!

(loved your piece on seth's blog!!)
