I was SO excited to participate in a collaborative Art to Inspiration project, spearheaded by the lovely Supal of Chevrons and Eclairs! There aren’t many rules, so I mulled it over for a long time about before I settled on what I wanted to create. Finally I realized that I should go with what I know: sketchbook pages. I’ve done many art reactions in my time in school and I thought it would be fun to do one for this piece.
I took a page in my sketchbook that had notes and a few drawings on it, and I layered acrylic paint, watercolor, tissue paper, and some old trace paper drawings on top. The final layer was just a few words on my association with the artist. In school one of my professors showed this photograph several times, and it’s simplicity stuck with me.
