My obstructions were the following:
-Must use green and one other color
-Take three separate walks and jot down notes each time
-Wear someone else's shoes
I felt that these were not really obstructions, but were instead suggestions. People often get the idea that I can only operate in a cage built of rulers, stencils and masking tape because they only see the hard line stuff. My work has a wider range than that but I have to keep up with the pattern stuff until I flesh out this particular body of work. I nevertheless faced this challenge as an excuse to let in a little indulgence to see if it could take me somewhere new. I am not sure yet if I have found any new discoveries, but perhaps there is something in there that has a timed-release nature and it will slowly unpack itself in a couple weeks. Anyways, here it is. The images following the obstructions piece are in-process snaps of my final piece for the Summer session.
