Spread 205 – Boys! – Men!

Spread 205 – Boys! – Men!

12 Sept 2015

Vintage and personal papers, photos, found objects, matte medium, Nova Color Paint, Black and white gesso.

I came across an interesting article the other day on visual journaling, self-regulation and stress reduction by Cathy Malchodi. You can read the article here. I do visual journaling for many reasons, some of which I have go into in this blog, if you follow me.

What interests me today is when is a spread finished? As with this spread, I started in almost a year ago. It was “finished” today with a little bit of doodling.

    oh – a good question – when is an artwork finished? one of the minor benefits of a deadline is it answers this question for me occasionally.
