GridSunrise in process

in the realm of blur photography this image I shot early one chilly morning is inspiration for the latest, similar to WeaveGround Series piece I'm preparing. don't always get my inspiration from a photograph. sometimes its grows out of selecting a color and beginning drawing trusting my creative process to express itself. Sometimes there's a figurative or literal idea to begin with, or an actual visual image perceptively "seen". the preparation is attaching a sheet of Papel de Amate to a sheet of Khadi paper with wheat paste. the application process soaks both papers and presses them for at least 24 hrs (til dry) with a heavy flat 21" x 28" x 1 1/2" slab of bamboo counter sink cut out. then scraping away unwanted dry wheat paste with a knife until there's a happy surface. then begins the layering of pigmented beeswax.
