serendipity

I thought quite a lot about serendipity recently when I rewrote my About page, and how when it happens it gives the project I’m working on a real boost. These two pieces came together quite by chance yesterday and I absolutely love them, particularly the lighter grey/blue one. They’re acrylic ink on paper, and really just an extension of the doodling I was doing a few weeks back. Inspiration for the mark making has come from Stella Untalan an artist based in Philadelphia who I came across online. Her process is all about the mark and the material upon which it is made.

I’m using the backgound image shapes to determine how I apply my marks. At the moment the vertical stripes are still very much in evidence, and that feels right but who knows where it might go next.
