For the September Artist of the Month (Romare Bearden) I pretty much HAD to do a collage. The thing is, I didn’t know what it should be about. I’ve never especially identified with any one heritage, despite being a potluck of beer-slugging nationalities. So what to make?
What happened is I went in with the worst plan – no plan at all. I decided to take images from all of the Artists of the Month so far – an image of the artist and an image of one of their works. I thought maybe if I dropped all of these image into a project and “let them speak to me” that somehow I’d get this neat collage out of it. Hey, sometimes that approach works. Not so much this time.
The biggest regret I have over this is not doing a timelapse. At first I thought it wouldn’t be interesting, but as I was playing with pieces of images I realized it was a real missed opportunity! Maybe I’ll try making another collage with timelapse turned on – and I’ll be sure to have a plan before i start.
