In 2004 and again in 2006 I used a layered process with paper and canvas cuts, cushioned between perspex and luxaflex translucent paper . . . . however, while on our travels we were seriously fascinated by the sophistication of this particular art form and how it has been taken to the streets.
I have always had a facination with the process of 'what to remove & what remains'?
|Could we look any more like tourists?|
|Nearly every surface is painted . .|
Look at the size and detail . . . amazing!!
|Makes you feel so insignificant|
. . . but then, as if there were not enough already . . . more!.

Rome - Pompeii - Amalfi Coast - Rome - Sienna - Pisa - Assisi - San Gimiginano - Tuscany villa - Cinque Terra - Florence - Venice - that should do it!!!!!
then 3 weeks in Turkey . . .Wonderful!!!!
So much has been said about all these incredible places, that I do not feel I would do justice to a description . . .so will just post a few pics . . .
My God !!. . . Venice. I know I am expected, to feel like I am in a foreign country, but it is far more than that . . . . I feel like I am on another planet.
One week is just a taste . . .what bliss!

Recently I had the enjoyable task of helping conduct workshops at the Indigiscape centre. This remarkable place helps spread the word about the environment, through educational workshops, demonstrations, open days and numerous other informative avenues.
Hundreds of bags were produced using both the screen printing and sun print techniques. The theme for this project was to spread the word about the problems being faced by our beautiful Koalas.
I was thrilled to see how enthralled both children and parents were in the processes and the results.
I do love these days of sharing and creativity.
( My involvement has been greatly curtailed since my accident last year, which resulted in a serious reduction in mobility. I do miss the Rusty Roo workshops immensely and hope eventually to be able to have the ability to do them again . . . . . )
I will add some pictures when and if BLOGGER decides to allow me to upload them. I know how frustrating technology can be and feel for you Candy ! Yahhhhhhhhhhhh Thankyou Blogger !!)

The progressive canvases have proceeded to move through to the next contributor.
While it has been interesting to see how we as individuals respond to contributing to someone elses work, it has also been enlightening to see how people react to my work and to have them explain why they have added their creative input to enhance the imagery further . . . . . and why they decided on the medium and process they used to work their own particular form of magic.
I'm finding the physical structure of the works evolving through the 'progressive canvas' project . . . . . innovative, because of the unexpected contributions. . . . . however I have been bamboozled by my hesitation to contribute to someone elses canvases. I didn't realize the responsibility of ownership could be so frightening. What if I stuff it up ?
It goes without saying that the collaboration with co-artists has been a happy learning curve.
What will the next layer bring forth . . .or discard?
