an occasional artist & a lover of pretty things
“all the variety, all the charm, all the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.”

Recent work by the infallible Phil Noto:
Following in the vein of my “Walk On It" response, I did the Art Assignment "Imprint" slowly and without many expectations. I finally completed it, using some cut flowers I had been gifted for a recent birthday. I sliced orchids, chrysanthemums, roses, and a carnation sliced in half with a straight blade in several different directions and used three paint colors (red, blue, and green) I happened to have on hand. Before beginning, I thought I would leave the prints relatively separate of one another, but shortly after starting I decided to purposefully overlap them, since so much of the project (such as the shapes created) was out of my control anyway. While I let the occasional one maintain its shape pretty independently, letting it become a busier print left me less room to be overly critical of it.
