One of the exercises was to cut out words and phrases from magazines that stood out to you and make them into a poem. I painted the background first then stuck the words on.
In another exercise we were asked to collect together lots of photographs of our lives plus bits and pieces about things we like and create a storyboard.
When it was finished I looked at it and realised vast swathes of my life are missing from the storyboard. There's nothing up there about my education or my working life. So what is there? Some family and various elements of my creativity - art, textiles and photography.
The photos didn't last long on the back of the door - some of them were pulling other ones off so I took them down and put them into the groups they seemed to belong to.
It is very interesting to me to look at these photos and ponder on why I chose them and what they represent. And how much was left out and why.
And then from this storyboard I painted a timeline picture. If you want more details on how I did that you will need to sign up for the Jeanne Oliver class.
Here's how I started.
Thanks for stopping by.
