This morning I was on the way to my studio just wanting to create something. (Okay so it is only at the bottom of a set of stairs, but I knew something had to happen since I was feeling so inspired to go forward with an idea.) Right now I am in the midst of many amazing projects, writing an ebook, doing workshop prep, a keynote to polish, an enews to write and a workshop of the month to finish for KathyAnne Art members. Plus I am in the process of working on 2 art pieces simultaneously one for our 8 that create group and one for a refuse show.
So what am I doing today? Creating without regard to what deadlines are looming. That is one of the things I love the best. This is also a refuse piece that is calling me, so I can’t stop myself. Have to go with the flow on this one and what a great morning it was with most of the elements ready to construct this piece.
Here is the start of the set up and then I will have to see what other parts will be needed to assemble the piece. Only a few more elements to get this to go together.
My first inspiration was to go for the bottle caps. Then I went for a rectangular box shape that is 6″ x 6″ x 10″.
This rectangular hardware cloth piece was put together a few months ago and not used.
Next I knew I wanted to fill the bottle caps with layers of something and the total layer thing wasn’t clear yet, so I started with beverage can prints.
I tested some beverage cans to stamp into circles and found the size I wanted. I then proceeded to cut enough circles with a smaller size circle to layer over the large one.
I know what’s next- this print will be torn small to fold over the edges of the bottle tops with 2 layers of beverage can circles and maybe beads. I will try a study of a few caps later today or tomorrow.
