In My Head … Ideas and My Processes

What's brewing or being created, and how.

Pages.

With a background in English and Literature, it's not surprising that I have many ideas that have come from what I have read or thought about when reading, so it also shouldn't be a surprise that I am working on images relating to scenes or words from the most memorable things I have read.  Below is a sampling:

"The Everlasting Gospel"

"This life's dim windows of the soul/Distorts the heavens from pole to pole/and leads you to believe a lie/when you see with, not through, the eye."William Blake, "The Everlasting Gospel"

Distortion is everywhere. And it intrigues me.

 "Swell"  "The cars zoomed by, brakes screeched all over the place, his parents paid no attention to him, and he kept on walking next to the curb and singing, 'If a body each a body coming through the rye.' It made me feel better. It made me feel not so depressed anymore."   Salinger,  Catcher in the Rye   Ohhhh HOLDEN!

Wallpaper.

I have an obsession for old, peeling wallpaper. When I go to any abandoned house, one thing I am drawn to are the walls. Anyone who has photographed with me knows I take a TON of pictures. Way too many. One advantage of that, though, is that I have looked back through my image files and found many pictures of wallpaper or walls that I love. So I had this idea to make wallpaper out of wallpaper. And that's where I'm going to leave it for now.
