I was looking forward to sleeping in but only managed 15 extra minutes, oh well by the time I get used to sleeping in it will be Sept and I'll need to wake up early again....it's overrated anyway...there's so much I can get done.....early morning walks, new art projects, picking giveaway winners.

Denice who send me an email entry saying:
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE INCHIE ART!!!
I modify for my pre-k students by using four 2x2 inch squares.. Thank you!"
Thanks everyone for entering and don't be discouraged I have more giveaways lined up for the next few weeks.
Now on to the third row of inchies.
Please see Monday's post for list of materials and supplies:
Jim Dine, specifically his "4 Hearts" from 1969.
The larger project for this one is actually another inchie project I do around Valentine's Day. The directions for that project can be found HERE.
Paint in some color and then add an outline.
optical artwork of Bridget Riley.
This is "To a Summer's Day" 1980 that I photographed in London.
Tate Modern in London and from which my inchie is based.
For both the large version and an inchie you start by finding a piece of cardboard or chipboard that is the length of your paper. I use old cereal or cracker boxes. Cut a strip and then cut away a wavy pattern.Using the cardboard and medium and fine tipped markers create a series of repeating lines. Make some closer together than others. The illusion created will be that these lines are moving. This is optical art.

The larger project is based on a project I saw on another site but for the life of me I can't remember the reference. (if anyone knows please let me know so I can credit/link back appropriately).
This is of my son Ryan. What I liked about it was the combination of pictures and text. A great project for Kinders and Grade 1.
That's it. So much fun that I think I'll have to do a second set of Famous Art inchies in a future post!
I hope everyone has a great Canada Day weekend and I'll be back next week with more projects.
