Had a wonderful weekend touring our local arts festival. Over 300 high-end artists! Bands! Food! (o.k. so the food's not so hot). I made seven trips to the festival and boy, are my feet tired. I'm broken down, but it feels good.
I will share a few photos later. The camera is busy being recharged and so am I.
I'm wondering where to start next. Right now, I am without a series. Clueless. Lost. Bored? Could be.
I purchased a handful of pottery at the festival. Each piece came wrapped in a couple of brown paper bags. Unable to just toss these bags in the trash, I took them up to the studio and glazed and stamped on one bag. I took another and stuck some fabric and paper to it. Could I be heading in a somewhat new direction? I don't know.
I saw so much interesting artwork that was described as being "on board". What kind of board? If one is to use fabric, paper, glue, etc., what kind of board would one use? Up until now, I have attached fabric hangers to my larger pieces and used wooden strips to hang them on the wall. My smaller pieces have been attached to matboard hangers with velcro with a hole poked into the matboard to slip over a nail. Since I am thinking about using more paper, I would possibly have to create "on board" or attach to board since the pieces would be more fragile than working solely with fabric.
The question is, what kind of board?
Are there any artists out there creating on board? If so, I could sure use some advice.
