artist's way open studio review (march)

by gl. at 11:59 pm

wow. what a night! lots of creative chaos and connections, a perfect way to celebrate the first anniversary of intuitive collage at scarlet star studios! the studio was perfectly packed and we made more collages than ever (21!) with an abundance of cupcakes. some classic faces and new additions, all with generous hearts. we even got a visit & a dvd from the woman who made a brief film of us for her documentary film class last time!

["i contain multitudes": click the image to see the other collages]

i was almost too busy to make a collage tonight! the largest circle is actually a CD that sticks out a little past the right of the card and the topmost circle is a typewriter key that says "shift lock" and will look better when the glue has completely dried. it definitely has that "worlds within worlds" or "all potential futures" sort of vibe.

the title of this piece is from walt whitman's "song of myself":

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

next month i'm changing the format a little: instead of just straight intuitive collage, i'll be including a theme based on an artist's way chapter (april=strength). i might throw in a writing exercise, too, or simply a more coherent show&tell option at the end of the night.
