Arting for 365 Day 24: Seedy

Day 24 (5/22/12): Seedy

Goal: To create one work of art each day for 365 consecutive days

If you have been following my daily endeavor, it may be obvious to you that I am fascinated by the little seeds I found and used in day 10 and day 14’s projects. I love how delicate they appear – even though they are pretty rigid, the textured lines that grow from their spine outward, and their perfect wing-like shape. So I thought I would interpret these traits by incorporating a drawing of the seed in day 24’s piece.

It was clear to me that I needed to pair my drawing with seeds for the 11 x 14” work. But after gluing them down it was obvious that the large drawing and the seeds competed with each other – fighting for attention and definitely not working together. I hoped that glazing each seed with paint would fix the problem, but instead, a muddy mess appeared. The seeds had to go. As I began peeling each off, great silhouettes appeared, allowing me to explore my drawing a bit further.
