I’ve always been attracted to Animation and have wanted to do some of my own; at least since college in the Sixties and wandering into the film editing and splicing room at the Boston Museum School. I’ve lived in towns too small for Animation classes or opportunities to apprentice myself to learn. My local community college gave me the opportunity to make my Muppet adaptations dance, but Oh My! the learning curve is Steep in computer programs, and I keep asking myself…what would I Do with animation??? What stories do I have to tell?
Of course, I’m always telling stories with my art work, and yesterday I had the opportunity to sample Direct Animation from Devon Damonte at the Bainbridge Island Art Museum. Yes, I still do have the bug…making my images move is SO COOL! And Devon introduced me to a woman who does animation and lives in my town!!!
A couple of new dolls.
Three new spreads in the blue journal. I’m really liking white ink on dark background
It’s Never Too Late to see what it would be like to pursue at least some version of your dream!!!! I’m working on the Hot Flash book where I say that.
Collage and story telling is how I work. Repeating the image of the crouching woman much smaller. Who knows what will be next?
On every front, spring is here, the Peninsula is waking up…trees and daffodils in bloom, people are coming out of hibernation and starting new projects. Lots of art work to show you from the last 2 weeks…next week’s offerings may be slim, but that’s the way it goes.
March birthdays, great meals: crab melts with roasted veggies, Halibut cheeks with crab
Port Williams, then a Fabulous BLT, onion rings, milk shake at the 101 Diner
More Art: collage and that white pen, fabric collage with a photo of Dad with his camp buddies in 1938 (he’s on the right end) Photo printed on silk.
I’ll be having a show of my paintings at the library in Sequim in June and I’d really, really like to use that as impetus to actually Use the larger canvases I’ve been hoarding…Stay Tuned!
