I've been that these last days. Spaced out. Like an involuntary vacation from heaviness.
Spaced out is an interesting base for composition. Room. Floating focus.
I've jotted down intentions for considering a spaced out nine format before. Trying to track back I found this:
And this...from Small Journeys... In case you haven't been on that trip yet.
Reconsidering Spaced out as a base for space then.
Working with one of those dyed bases here. And the nine from here. For now. Thinking about creating a pieced version of this base idea as well. And then maybe some other ways, there might be so many. I like this version of space. Divided by what is, a sense of order floating in it. Instead of harem cloth I used a small cotton print behind the thin dyed cloth. For the stabilizing layer. I like starry effect, blurred, like in a fog. There are many ways to play with this format. There is the center, the sense of windows, the spaces in between. Connecting the squares like dots, horizontally, vertically. All ways like a star. Well, shall we?
Note to self: A base, the field of space we choose to work within gives context to the story unfolding. Or sometimes the context can be the whole story. A not so blank slate. A welcome mat. Oh ha. I'm back!
