My previous blog site, Withdrawn:scribing Nancy, has its own trajectory. This site, on the other hand, explores and expands on things and ideas that have grown out of (and along side) the scribing project.
While working on the rose scribing, I was searching for other ways of marking the process, of marking time – (the daily journal, the quotidian ritual). One of these experiments led to the use of the petals as a painting/drawing medium – the rose skids. Reddish purple stains made by crushing and smudging a petal into the paper.
Some petals – unusual ones, I expanded on by adding more drawing with graphite and blue and red powdered pastel.
