Spread 154- Close-ups November 29, 2011

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

An unfamiliar and gripping process it was to scout for tiny little visual worlds within my, in comparison, much larger journal pages for the purpose of designing 100 Moo mini cards. I was gently moving around the Rectangular Marquee tool (in Photoshop) in search for many self-contained macro visual worlds laden with new meaningful perceivable information. An eye-opening, revelatory, and happy-making process. I should do this more often. It’s like diving into a far-and-wide-reaching river, aiming straight to the deep bottom to get a glimpse of a small river rock that is like no other, one with its own story, solely told by me. The mini compositions offered me intimacy I did not notice before in my pages. I tend to look at my art, my days, my everything through wide-angle lenses, from a panoramic view. Sometimes my riverbed appears quite indistinct until I pick one rock up and look at it closely.

I often take close up photos of my journal pages and blog those, often they are my favorite parts, the cut outs of the big picture, details of the whole. Try that too. And moos are so much fun! Yay.

Well, so much truth and beauty in both your words and images, Orly! And look what a beautiful new piece of art has emerged in the mosaic of your river rocks—a magnificent new river. I love Mini Moo Cards. What a gift you will be giving everyone…and what a gift you have given yourself (and me). Love you.

Well, Orly, it would seem that the unfamiliar and gripping process brought about some amazingly wonderful and lovely results…as is most times the case…

FANTASTIC! Exquisite! Yay! I LOVE it! And Moo cuteness is perfect for you – as already evidenced by what it has brought to you in your creative process. But then, Orly dear, YOU turn everything in your experience into an opportunity for soulful expansion. YOU are what makes your world so endlessly beautiful and suprirising. Love to you.

I LOVE these!! I love moo!! I just made a batch too and I enjoy your insights. Entire beautiful compositions within compositions! What joy in finding them inside your own work. I think it shows us a new way to look at and appreciate pieces. 🙂 I bet your cards will be amazing. I really loooooove putting them all onto one large spread too. Gorgeous!
