On my table today

I like to play with the random elements on my table. I created several handmade books from paste paper. Some of the papers I have scanned and created printed papers I take pictures and use them as sketches of combinations I like.

Painting abstracts

I am participating in Creative Every Day in November. Yesterday I posted some papers I have been painting. I chose a few colors, red, blue, a buttermilk yellow, black, and blue. Next I took a pad of 116 lb paper, and with black paint and a small brush I began to paint lines to block off sections:
I then filled in the blocks with colors that at the time felt yummy to me.
I painted details of doodles on top of the color blocks. The pictures show different patterns and designs, I was so into this it was hard to follow it step by step to take photos. I plan to use these paintings in other projects later.
