then came the inking......
I could not begin to use color till
I figured out just exactly what was
this page about---what was behind
those eye close-ups of yours truly.
Knowing me, pretty well.......
I wrote phrase after phrase and
then turned the paper over to write
more. When I wrote what I used, I
knew instantly, that THAT was
the reason for this spread....
a reminder to stay out
of that trap of the past. I
also bothered to make 4 different quick
small color selection trials--which
I thought at the time, was adding too
much "thought" into a simple
spread...this might kill my enthusiasm......
and nothing looked good to me
until the thought of using very soft
colors crystallized and that was right...for me.
