Small Wordless Sketchbook 2020 Pages 36 and 37

In March-June 2020 I created a sketchbook full of art made from odds and ends I had saved. The book has no words, just pictures. I am showing you the whole book, two facing pages at a time. The book was finished in June. I made it to help myself feel better as I passed through the early days of the pandemic.

Here are the project’s specifics.The book is a mixed media sketchbook that’s 5.5″ x 7.5″. I used collage materials including magazine pages and scraps of my own discarded artworks, as well as acrylic paints and inks, India ink, and pens, regular brushes, and bamboo brushes.

Here are the pages as they appear in the book:

Here is a more detailed look at the images.

    My first thought: the women are listening attentively to something or someone (but clearly not to the man-fish in the water, they show him no interest at all). After a while, I saw a page in a photo book, or a photo collage. Came to think of the fish in your hair again… It’s so interesting when images keep shifting and you see more and more in them. Your paintings often offer that experience!

    Thank you. That makes me feel great, that you find more to see in each picture as you look more. Because that is what I try to do in my art – I guess because I am attracted to that kind of work myself. I think there should always be another mystery in the picture to be deciphered, or more story to enjoy.
