I had in my mind today that I wanted to use a spiral, though I’m not sure why. I think I was thinking about a page I did in an altered book that had a spiral. So I grabbed a page from a magazine and tore it into a spiral. It had blue on it so I painted the postcard blue and stuck the spiral to the wet paint. I had found a page filled with eyes and thought adding one to the center of the spiral would be interesting. The entire piece was louder than I wanted so I took some of the blue mixed with matte medium and painted over the surface, streaking the paint and softening it a little. It still wasn’t where I wanted it to be so I took some gold acrylic mixed with matte medium and painted over the dry surface. Then I felt it was “done”. I love the eye. It’s sort of mysterious or even eerie. Like the card is looking back at you! I liked the idea that if you follow the spiral you can find inner vision. Because if you think about it knowledge is never found on a straight, clear path.
