I have been aiming to work more toward the abstract . To help me along
the way I have joined an Abstract Challenge group
and this months challenge following the
storms in the U.S.A is 'Sandy'.
This is an exercise in Sketch book design so I don't have
to complete a textile mixed media piece.
So this is the start of my first piece. Dark stormy skies in soft pastels with
isobars based on a manipulated copy of my thumb print. I have also decided to
include text within each piece. Thinking about the devastation that
a storm such a Sandy would bring made me think about all the people
that are important in my life. So the text is a stamp of
'How do I love thee, let me count the ways'
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
