Hard to see but there is a large sheet of tracing paper that I'll so be using the dowel rod tool to make some marks with.
There you go..are the cris-cross lines interesting..well I sure do love them
Here is a piece that is 8 x 8 inch. I'm using this composition and going larger..now the composition always changes so I'm not sure what the end piece will look like but I had to make some bigger sheets of paper to use on this. Already I have a maroon red instead of a red red.
About the Miles.. I've been keeping track of my exercise miles now since 2007 and I'm almost at 4000. So that means I've vamping up the exercise so I can reach that goal soon. Yesterday in the heat I put on 12 miles. 6 with my bike around the neighborhood and 6 granny run miles out in the woods. Remarkable though is I pumped my self with some fruit, beets and cherries and of course some water and went right up to the studio to work on these papers..
Head out with the dogs early and got there exercise in and then biked another 6 miles..I have butt muscles!! too funny as they were there but saggy a bit..it feels really good to go fast around the corners..got to keep a watch though for the cars. I wear my helmet and a safety vest so they can see me..some people don't even look..it amazes me. Now time to get back up there and coat the papers..I was also able to get my creative writing journal ready for Fridays class.
