One day I was making a collage and needed some tiny eyes to paste onto a head that had no features. I found them in an encyclopedia illustration, cut them out and used them in the collage below.
Afterwards, the eyeless head was sitting on my work table on top of some plain yellow paper. (I find it helps my creativity if I don't clean up too quickly; yesterday's leftovers may become today's feature image) Here's what I did with it:
Subsequently I re-used the zombie eyes several times, usually with the solid color gaze.
I make abstract art -- usually with a needle but sometimes with a pen, brush or camera, scissors and glue, pliers and wirecutters, whatever is there. I have a husband, two sons, seven sewing machines, a big messy studio and lots of other people's art. Life is good!
