Here it is (though I can't get the formatting quite right, I'm afraid, and this post is reading all wonky.)
For those who aren't familiar with this - as I wasn't until very recently - it's when an Etsy user chooses up to 16 images of works for sale by other sellers and puts them together in a pictorial mosaic; usually under a theme.
I wandered through some of my favourite Etsy shops and picked items that caught my eye. Soon, a theme emerged. Once it was all together, I gave it the title "in the room of november dreams."
The colours are muted: greys, pale or slaty blues, dusty beiges. Colours I love.
When I got back to my own Etsy offerings, I was shocked by how different from these the colours in my recent collages are.
Pieces have a way of creating themselves. And the ones I created in the past two months - when the trees outside were blazing with warm colour under an intensely blue sky - reflect that time.
But now, in November's muted mood, I feel my palette being affected once again.
Here's my latest collage.
(mixed media collage: 15 x 15 cm.)
Much more of a sober November feel.
It's fascinating to see how season can affect one's art.
(For those who read the earlier version of this post, no I wasn't referring to my skid when I mentioned my pallet, I'm just one of the world's worst spellers! Foiled by spellcheck and English homophones once again!)
