I really have to start posting earlier in the day. If you get some funny non-words, it's because my head has hit the keyboard, and I'm asleep!
Today's collage started with a dictionary page, which happened to contain the words oneness, oneself, and on the flip side, omnipresence. Also omnivorous, but that's a whole other story. The words suggested a "take care of the earth theme" to me. probably because I've been thinking a lot about global warming this week following the hurricane.
Somehow I managed to find the Gaia stamp that I had carved a couple of years ago (someone really needs to organize this place), and that became the focus. I also added the seedling stamp that I had carved around the same time. (Note to the Curly One- Not copying you. I drew it first!) A cutout flower, that looked like the sun, some paint and pastels and it was mostly done.
The final step was to write below the flower. I copied the sentence that the dictionary had as a usage example for "oneself". It says, "One must take a certain amount of initiative oneself". A good idea generally, but especially so when talking about the environment. What do you think?
