Paint dots and smudge marks first ..THEN added the background over it. Added bright stringent dark purple sharpie around the pink dots on the left..didn't care for that. So I gessoed them, added punchinella stenciled marks added more light green with my fingers.
I did not take process pictures because it's not about the process its about playing. What you can't see is that I had 2 different pages made when I started. They were both blank, but one got dots and the other received a generous smearing of orange and yellow paints. Added a half circle on the upper right of the spine that was all alone. I then added a half circle on the left which was obviously lower but there was an obvious "disconnect".
A few swirls of blue stabile and wa-la! What you see here is a start to a journaling page.
Disconnect for me means this:
1) I have a disconnect in my life with who I am supposed to or want to be
2) I am not connected in my art so there is a disconnect with the circles
3) I want to keep all electronics aside from art and blogging to a minimal. Disconnect from the routine of nothing.
4) Nature and disconnect. I have fallen away from photography in a way that has me very narrow minded in seeing the beauty of art and nature in an organic form. I took my camera out into the woods in the rain and caught a few moments that allowed me to reconnect with my art and fresh air. Much needed.
