So the photo with my last post about Ceremony featured this work in progress. Above is the final one. 3.5″ x 2.5″ made with color pencil. I’ve been fascinated by the “artist trading card” products I’ve seen at a few places made by Strathmore and have looked into the phenomenon. I bought a pack recently and yesterday was trying my hand at seeing what I came up with. Smaller scales appeal to me. They are very intimate and portable. There’s something I love about art that can fit into a pocket. Like a portable shrine.
And this was my second effort. I went vertical and made the triangles slightly larger. I was thinking of the sun as I made this, but so far I’ve just titled them Art Card #1 and Art Card #2. This one is color pencil along with some gold leaf (pen) scattered throughout. Good stuff. I’m really feeling like I have so much to explore with triangles still, I could probably work with them forever. (And I may!) Can’t wait to get into painting triangles, it will be happening soon. I can feel it. I’d like to do oil, but should probably start out with acrylic since I have some of those supplies already.
