Like the first piece in my new series of 3 artworks, my second piece has also been inspired by dots, evening book reading, chihuahua’s and the colors I’ve seen in my local landscape. My newest piece is titled “The Read Wagon”. It, too, is made with my hand dyed, handmade papers, hand stenciled papers, found paper and acrylic on cradled board.
For “The Read Wagon” I thought about how books I’ve read in the past, the experiences I’ve had, have enabled me to understand and appreciate new-to-me books and new-to-me experiences. I imagine myself as walking around with an invisible wagon tagging along behind me full of the stuff-of-memory, education and awareness.
