Spread 155 - Enough - 72

Spread 155 – Enough

Dec  7 – 24 2013

Found and vintage papers, Black and white gesso, Sigano white gel pen, black Micron pens, Nova Color paints, matt medium, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, matt varnish.

It starts as a conversation with John, or Terry, or Orly, or someone in a class, or my partner. You all contribute to a spread. It is a collaboration of sorts. I work in layers, first paint and paper, then gesso, matt medium, more paper and paint. It builds up, I am not feeling it. I work in layers, layers of my mind. I have to get to that deeper layer inside and outside on the spread. Adding, subtracting, obsessing. Is it enough, is it me? Suddenly it happens I don’t know when or where it happens. I am there. As you can see this spread happened between December 7 to today, December 24. It’s part of a conversation in my head, or a mindlessness, it happens… enough.

Thank you for giving me something else to read this AM besides Merry you-know-what. Sigh………….

I really find this one to be deep- I love the depth in it’s structure. I also love the outlining in white- what kind of white pen is that- Sorry I am sure I have asked you that before.

I feel you Brian as I get lost in layers of paint and paper too. What a wonderful spread. So glad you also joined a stand for journaling and I found you and your art.

Intriguing layering and beautiful colors.

Riveting! The depth in the layers invite one to stay awhile and explore.
See your work on A Stand for Art Journaling.

I stumbled upon your site about a month ago and have enjoyed it immensely. Your work, the blog links, everything about the site is inspirational. I only wish I was closer to LA (I’m in Alabama, of all places) to take advantage of the labs and workshops that are listed. Keep up the good work! John
