- staying with the concept of 3 adjoining lines, still intrigued that they should almost always meet at 3 , sometimes if the formation is slow to connect they can meet at 4 ... nature is wonderous
- I wake up sit at my desk and feel like making a few of these marks, it is a peculiar feeling , free of any expectation yet constrained within 120 degrees ' ish and 3 points connecting into 1 , the restraint is somewhat freeing in and of itself giving me freedom to be within it rather than expand so large that sometimes I am unable to make a single mark for the multitude of choices seem to overwhelm me ..
- trying these shapes on some hand-dyed cloth ..made with plants and leaving random leaf prints , another thing that appeals to my sense of spontaneous discovery
- the leftover sheet catching spills has become my morning playground, shapes and lines are starting to overlap as I visually explore the concepts of 3, 120 , connecting, lines meeting .. I am beginning to enjoy the layers as they start to disguise each other opening up all kinds of narrative
- Last nights Bath became the starting point of immersing myself into the observation of the bubble formations, its just fascinating how they juggle for position, seem to always be moving towards the nearest set of three and moving along in groups of 3
- when reading a friends blog about the " immersive nature" of artmaking, which seems to always result in such deep insights rather than exploring things from a photograph point of you , I am reminded how the idea of immediate markmaking, akin to plein air painting really resonates with me yet I do not often translate that into drawing or pen and ink work, more sculptural or textural assemblage type art .. This made me think of digging out an underwater camera and filling my bath with colored soap bubbles ... :-)
