Journey (OR-7) and other AB Pages.

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.)

OR-7 - now known as 'Journey'

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.

    Very nice. I will have to try that paint technique, I like the look of that. We have several large packs of wolves in our area. I have always liked wolves but there is much tension in our area. Many domestic dogs have been attacked or killed by them. Some even on a leash with the owner 10 feet away. There needs to be a common ground that is for sure. Thanks for sharing. Are your other spreads up? I thought you posted you did a few spreads?

    Love wolves! Love animals. What a cleaver idea to add the skeleton on one side and OR-7 on the other. You are an inspiration.

    Splendid! I have enjoyed following the journey of OR-7 (hadn’t realized his name had been chosen) and this is such a nice depiction. I also love seeing the materials I have shared being used! Oddly enough, I woke up this morning trying to image using painter’s tape to create shapes….now that I see it done I’m even more inspired to try it. Thanks for continuting to be a “muse.” – Lee in Oregon
