|"risk, freedom, and love," linocut, wip print|
You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore....
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
I finished this linocut of two astronauts in love a couple of weeks ago. I have been debating whether to leave the background or add stars, the suit's life lines and a heart.
Using test prints, I added different elements to the print. However, the added elements seemed to take away rather than improve, and I kept coming back to the linocut as it was. I think I really liked the look of two people floating in space together and letting the viewer piece everything together in her own mind.
Today, I once more toyed around with the print in gimp and went down to get some feedback on to add or not to add from my husband. Without knowing which way I was leaning, he also felt adding nothing was the way to go. And he gave me the idea for the title.
So .... now I am looking forward to printing this linocut in the coming days.
wishing everyone a creative week and joining sunday sketches
