Pages in Progress

I began this two-page spread my first morning in Portland last week by gluing down fodder that I had collected from walking around the day before, which I shared in this post. I haven't done too much to it yet, but over several days in Portland, I added the rectangles and a little bit of watercolor paint and watercolor pencil. I also started about eight other pages with fodder, writing, and color since then. This is how I primarily work - I get a lot of things going, and then I slowly build up layers, materials, and ideas. I look at my art as an accumulation of actions, and I don't plan out the work. It is spontaneous and flows from the making.

I'll share more as this spread progresses.
