There are only three possible outcomes.
Rock crushes scissors. Scissors cut paper. Paper covers rock.
In my studio there often seems to be a game of rock paper scissors going on, little power plays to decide whose turn it is … idea? intuition? technique?
Today brought a mess of such little power plays. I started with a happy section of the blind contour drawing I'd made awhile back. I ended with a 3.75x3.75" dissatisfaction of ink, acrylic, and pastels on watercolor paper.
But then, scissors cut paper. HA!
That square of disappointment became nine little 1.25" square paper tiles—a series of little color-and-line satisfactions to move around a game board.
A whole new game.
And it was my turn to do something!
I made a card and sent it to Carrie.
