"An Open Heart"
"An open heart is ready to worship." The essence of worship is to put God first.
There are no more scraps from my large piece, so this is the last one of its kind. And only two more days of 4" x 6"'s and then I will be back to my 6 x 6 format. If you would like to receive one of these 4 x 6's...you will have a chance this Friday evening at the Opening Reception for "Visual Rhapsody". The pieces are all hung and this is an extraordinary exhibition. (140 pieces) Check out the invitation on our website at pactofaustin.com
After the many commentaries on "echoes", division of space, and designing corners, you can plainly see all of these things coming together in today's posting. If you like collage, design, and old books, or any other odd bits of paper, you can have great fun and a hugh learning experience in design by playing with a small piece of this type every day. If you need someone to hold your feet to the fire...call me. I'm quite good at doing that type of thing!
If you are also into other media such as mosaics, kiln formed glass, or assemblages, you will find that learning more about design through the medium of collage can help all of your work go to the next level. You can still be spontaneous and think about design at the same time. They are not mutually exclusive. In fact, the idea that things simply fall out of heaven on your head is a myth. Even people with tons of natural ability, must work hard to improve their skill level. So have fun, think, and work hard and you will soon be seeing much more depth in your work. And there you have it...just a few more things to think about.
