I don’t know what the problem has been – maybe just fatigue – but I took a couple of days off and shuffled paper around for a bit.
I found that I had this huge pile of hand-painted paper, some of it from several years ago. I thought it was better used than sitting in a box out of sight. So I did cutting and sticking, not really thinking, just letting colours sit together. And I do feel a little better. I don’t know how or why, but there it is. A change is as good as a rest, and all that.
I found a spiral-bound book with a few coloured pastel papers still in it, so I used that to stick everything in. I’ll probably make some sort of cover for it.
I can see some of these working as smaller pieces in the peace series – maybe stitched cloths about 15″ square or so.
In the true spirit of time out, today I’m going to sort my fabric cupboard – tidying colours together, folding crumpled heaps etc. Later, and perhaps tomorrow as well, I intend to dye.
