when light enters ..............studio 207
I have been a bit under the weather...the past few weeks. Just a lot of things happening at the same time. Today, I came into the studio a little early before assisting classes...and held the energy of the room. A way of centering myself...and preparing for the day! I ran across some of my ‘vintage clippings’ and decided to have a closer look. These are the vintage clippings that I found in my sweet Grandma Barica’s dresser Drawers. When we had to move her from her quaint blue house...on Connecticut street to my mom’s house.. I found that she lined her drawers with newspaper. The Newspaper dated back to 1960. I remember when I placed the paper into a box...and she smiled...shaking her head. She said, “Diane Diane... no one but you would see this old newspaper in the way you do... I know you will use it for something special”. I miss my grandma very much. I have used almost all of the clippings...since that day in many of my works of art. I decided to use “Back to school” text from some the clippings in a new work today! I spent about 25 minutes on it...but was pleased with the outcome.
