This challenge inspired me to think outside the box. I decided to used 8" x 8" pieces of recycled cardboard from a box I found in the garage as I did not have an 8" x 8" canvas available and was NOT going out in the snowstorm to get one. Painting on cardboard isn't new to me, but it has been a while since I've done it. I had forgotten what great textures and rich colors are naturally present when using cardboard as a base. I had fun layering tissue papers, patterned papers, newspaper, magazine clippings, old maps, and acrylic paints and adding outlines and borders with graphite pencil and oil pastel! I enjoyed watching images emerge on the cardboard as I watched the snow fall outside my window!
The piece I chose to submit to the Cloth, Paper, Scissors challenge is "Follow your heART... it knows the way!" This is the map I try to follow everyday as I work to create an artful life for myself and to share the joy and healing of art with others. I hope you like it!
Here are the other maps in my mini-series ("Siren's Song," "Balance and Bloom," "Life Energy").
