Sorry I haven't posted in a few weeks. (have you missed me just a little)? I been working on a show that will be at The Voyeur opening the last Friday in August so I have an excuse. (Just saying). However today since I have a bit of time I am doing a short and sweet post about my digital work.
Though I was online before I came to Eugene, the move from SF changed my 'online' relationship. All of a sudden 'real' life was much quieter and as I was struggling to keep my right brain stimulated. I searched for alternative online art sites and found one where you traded postcards with strangers in other parts of the world. I was also using the worldwide lesbian site called Shoe and to mix things up a bit I would often ask my online friends to trade handmade postcards. It seemed an easy way to keep the city stimulation I was accustomed to going. Following are some of the 'postcards' I sent.
The piece above is a cubist woman pondering the number 13. It was collaged onto a 4 by 6 tarot card. Once the collage part was done I scanned it then printed it onto watercolor paper and used a small paintbrush to manipulate the ink while it was still wet.
That's it for now my friends. All of the work I have been writing about in the blog posts titled 'journey to the inside' will be at my show the last Friday in August at The Voyeur. I know it's Eugene Celebration that weekend but I hope you will make time to come and see me. As always your comments are welcome and thanks for reading!
