100-Day Project 98-100
We broke free of gravity.
But it didn’t last.
–Sarah C. Harwell, “Major Arcana: The Moon”
When I finished #100, I had to do a bonus grid that included all the colors I used.
look up, to where we can never go,
to what won’t disappoint:
–Sarah C. Harwell, “Major Arcana: The Stars”
And then, of course, a composite. I think this arrangement really shows how I tried to work with the colors. I’m pleased with the result.
It looks like a painting by someone I can’t remember. How have I reached the point, is it age?
When the sky resembles a painting more than the sky?
–Sarah C. Harwell, “Cloud Cover”
I’ve been reading Sara C. Harwell’s book of poems “Sit Down Traveler” (can you tell?) I especially love “Major Arcana: The Stars”. I discovered the poet through an interview that a former teacher of mine, Mary Tabor, did for Rare Bird Radio (http://www.maryltabor.com/2013/01/sarah-c-harwell-poet-interview.html). You can also read several of Harwell’s poems here: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/sarah-c-harwell
As to the grids: although I won’t be doing them every day any more, I have lots of color explorations still in mind, so I won’t be giving them up either. And I can highly recommend 100 day of something as an exercise. I’ll be doing another one (many ideas), although probably not quite in such a disciplined way. And I’ll be taking a break first!
