|scan washed it out some, more vibrant in real life|
Nostalgia is defined as "a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations."
Was this my favorite period with happy associations? Well, yes and no. I love the 60's for the art that came from that era, the fashions were fun to wear ( hip huggers and bell bottoms oh my!), and some of the music still plays on my I-Pod, and we had just moved to California. Was I a hippie? no not really (my parents would have killed me.....grin) I was really more into the surfing scene and music. The 70's began my life I have now, getting married and having two sons, disco music (ha, ha, remember that?), some really funny sit-coms on TV (do you have a favorite you remember?) learning to water ski and snow ski, having a cabin in the mountains........all good memories.
This page has so many layer, I can't even begin to describe it. I wasn't happy with the way it was going with the 60's doodle work, then there were too many smudges to correct. A wash of Gesso, and then some ink spritz......oh no! I went for the numbers, wiping off some of the ink to show a peak of what was under it, then the baby wipes smeared the edges so I could just list things that came to mind during that time. So it became a hell of a mess, but in the end I do like it ........somewhat.....LOL
