Hiding in plain sight. The next stage.
Just as we have marked the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, this entry will be one of my shortest. Easier to write. Simpler to read.
This is also the month for sequels. For me, this means revisiting last December’s posting about my doodling project.
Here it is close up and personal. Squint your eyes. Notice the swan through the squiggles? The bottom picture shows how I extracted the image and put it into a scene. I send out another thank-you to all of the trusting visitors to the Gift Gallery at the Spinning Plate, this year and last, (https://www.facebook.com/giftgalleryatspinningplate) who sat down at my booth, shut their eyes, and doodled.
As I mentioned last year, the doodlers got to try out the process that is the underpinning of most of my pictures. And it was, excuse the pun, eye-opening for me to see people’s self-consciousness drop away with their eyes closed.
This project is still percolating. After collecting more pairs, I will figure out the next step toward making them into a cohesive display.
Just one more thing I want you to remember during this strange winter season. “It’s never too cold for ice cream.”
