Patterned Panorama with Diana Trout
What a treat this turned out to be!
Creating a 12x4 panorama with layers of paint, spray, ink, collage papers
(in my case vintage Asian papers)
All I could think of - the vision in my head - as I watched Diana work was
The Great Wall - my dh, daughters and I have such fond memories of climbing
(and I mean climbing!) a 10kms hike on a part of the wall that was far away from the tourist part.
A lot of this section was derelict, some of the wall missing, and the rubble troublesome.
The steps are not average sized, no - they are two feet tall with a width of 8-9in!! And in some of the towers, the overhanging bricks swung precariously just waiting for their moment to fall.
Nevertheless, the thrill of its derelict state, to walk and climb on untouched sections was an experience never to be forgotten... This part of China will always be with us.
Some close ups..
And some progress photos....
So thrilled with this!
My messy desk shelves, everything at eye-level as I work including the photo taken on our hike.
I could have tidied it, but this is what happens isn't it!
And Happy AUSTRALIA DAY!!!!!
Aaaaand, yesterday was my birthday....
what a wonderful long weekend!!!
