Meaning behind the art: Every day these past couple of weeks I have been chipping away at my task list and feeling good about crossing things off. Gray was the color I was seeing in the sky, I love gray. What is it right spelling? Grey or Gray�I use them both. How about you? When I got into the studio after lunch I knew I had some gray collage paper prepared and ready. The sheet I used was a gift from an artist friend, nautical maps. I�ve been afraid to use them but then sometimes you�ve got to face that fear right? So�to challenge myself I decided to use one piece of paper. This piece of paper has two sides so that allowed me to add a bit of contrast. I started with a simple horizontal composition and kind of let the papers tell me what to do. I�ve been working on another piece of art that I�m actually sewing the papers before I tack them down and the receptive stitch appeals to me. So I pulled out my tracing wheel ran it through some of the acrylic paint and made the marks.
