Sub conscious planning

It has always been a pleasant surprise to me what my sub conscious can do
if I just put an idea to rest in my mind rather than worrying it do death
Last week I shared a background that I had no idea what I was going to do with it.
Well, one night I went to bed, had a great sleep and woke up with a plan
I drew the stencil out on posterboard very loosely.

To make sense out of it, I had to fill in the horizontal strips.
Then I went to work with my Exacto cutting out the squares.
I put the stencil on the background and painted the openings black.
I am sorry I didn't take a photo of the results.
I couldn't make sense out of it...again!
I waited a couple of days to let my sub conscious work on it.
And then I went to work shading the appropriate strips.

I taped it to a glass to take the photo so ignore the white stripes on the left.

And here it was before.
I love these backgrounds because they are so unpredictable.
Happy PPF

  11. The colors of your paper weaving are gorgeous. They say inspiration will pop out in your brain while sleeping, and it certainly did do for you.

  13. How fun... you created a woven painting. I did that a few years ago. I painted two paintings of the same subject, and the cut them up and woven them together. It looked great and i had so much fun.
