But of course, I had to slice into it-->
...and add some commercial fabric and some I painted with acrylics.
Then mark-making to draw an object-->
And mark making to form patterns.-->
This drawing made me realize the potential of Mr. M's ties (now collecting dust) for my series on retirement and aging. You may see them again.
Patterns I understand, however, this was a challenging way to form them--look at different marks and lines in magazines and put them together in new patterns. I'm particularly fond of the spaghetti.
Finally, a landscape using patterns made from mark-making.
This is outside my kitchen door where lots of succulents grow.
An interesting week, despite the cold weather...
