When one cracks a hard drive open it looks a lot like a space aged record player and the reader / needle resembles for all the world a beak. So with that in mind I began the crow part of the re-Cycled project. Here are some of the results.
|"Two Crows" acrylic on canvas with hard disk readers. c. 2004-2005|
|"As the crow flies" acrylic on canvas with various computery bits. Dec 2, 2010|
|"Wheee!" Acrylic on canvas. ( no computer bits, I didn't think it needed any. Dec 2, 2010|
|wall o' crows|
|"The Red Crow" Acrylic, acrylic paste on canvas with HDD reader c. 2004.|
|"In Flight" Acrylic on canvas with HDD reader. C. 2004|
I'm a slow worker as far as art is concerned. I work in small spurts, spending 2-3 days utterly invested in the art then leave it for months. I don't tend to be "inspired" so much as one day I get the need to paint or do something artistic and I just do it. It's as if a second brain takes over the logical boring housewifey brain and says "right let's have at it." I'm not that productive and once I'm done I'm done. I either hang the pieces some where or shove them away and move on. I am not a salesperson of any sort, I don't push myself to sell my art, run around to galleries and sell my art or anything like that. It feels weird, and somehow wrong and I just shy away from it. I like to create stuff and that's about it.
On the subject of crows, however, I get quite passionate. They fascinate me, in case you have not already figured this out. So painting them or at least trying to is a big thing, and enjoyable big thing. And to be honest I just like messing around with paint and computer junk.
Until then, Be excellent to each other.
