In the middle of the night, during a brief span of insomnia (is it insomnia if it's brief?), a light went on in my mind: Do it yourself—make your own collage papers (with paint! ha!).
I'd been planning to do something else today in my studio but knew I had limited time. The something else, while it might not have required a huge amount of time, would have needed temporal spaciousness surrounding it in order for me to get centered, so today wasn't the right day.
Instead, I landed in hog heaven painting up a page that I can cut into collage for Exercise 2. I was so happy playing with the luminous energetic colors—made me think of Laurie Mueller's colors, which I love!
Don't know how the drawing paper I painted will take to being collaged, but I'll find out soon enough.
