I knew my ‘page-a-day’ work in my Codes and Ciphers altered book would not last- but I periodically do a few pages when I’m not in a mood for anything else. I have uploaded six new pages to THIS ALBUM.
Yesterday I created this page, honoring Oregon’s VERY special wolf, ‘Journey’, formerly known as OR-7 (I still call him that). Here is the link to tell you all about this amazing animal. ( the link opens in a new window.)
Journey has a radio collar on. The images I took from a century-old nature volume on mammals, given to me by fellow artist Lee Kirk. I used removable painters tape to create the multicolored background, adding color as I repositioned the tape several times. I then added a single ply of painted paper toweling (that had been used under some fabric I was painting.) The images were added last – I used PPA for all the collage. With my black pen, I added lines which , to me, resembled mountain ranges. To travel from NE Oregon to SW Oregon and N. Calif., this amazing creature has walked some mighty mountain paths. I hope common ground will be reached with naturalists and ranchers alike, so that these Created beings can continue to share in the beauty and natural bounty of our land.
