12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #24 of 24, ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’, The Finished Painting

♪Now all them’s colors have been finalized

The background and them figures with little eyes

Embellishments such as tv’s, bowls and such

Some’s important, some’s don’t matter much ♪

 

♪There’s a lesson contained in this painting

My words I sing, not to keep you waiting

Check that stamped date before you buy

The odor emitted might just make you cry♪

 

♫Chorus

Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Checking the month, day, and year should be duly noted

Oh Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Aptly suggest that the can might be bloated ♫

 

The final painting of the 12 + 12 Project

Next Monday: The start of the ‘The Journey to Ukazoo Book’ Project.

The Journey to Ukazoo Book-Prelude

A prelude to ’The Journey to Ukazoo Book’.

Well, obviously I am not the woman in this painting, but for the introduction of the next upcoming project, her act of driving is used as a metaphor. The metaphor in this case, a Journey. Starting Monday November 19th I will begin a ‘sort-of’ new project. The ’sort-of ’ part is revisiting my first on-line project ’The Journey to Ukazoo’ posted 2013/2014. The new part is I will post the efforts to compile all the necessary ingredients to put that ‘journey’ into book form.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #23 of 24, ‘A Bridge in Time’, The Finished Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #23 of 24

Title-’A Bridge in Time’

Third sequenced post, ‘The Finished Painting’

 

To reference the ‘Doodles’ used, my favorite youngest son’s initial choice was a future city scene. I decided to use another ’Doodle’ he selected as the main subject but I did figure a way of using the ’city’. With his fondest of posting T-Rex/dinosaur memes/videos on FaceBook, I worked in a few dinosaurs, albeit tiny, and thus they and the city spawned the Title.

Next Monday the ‘Doodle’ for the final painting in this project.

 

A Note: The final painting in this project is called ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’ and the descriptive text for the three Monday posts (’Doodle’, Worksheet’, and Painting’) will be done in Song lyric format with verse and chorus.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #23 of 24, ‘A Bridge in Time’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #23 of 24

Title-’A Bridge in Time’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

 

Using ‘Doodle’ #3 (you can scroll back to the Oct. 8 post to see the ’Doodles’ used for the worksheet) for the main design, I was faced with three downward projections/columns. As the worksheet design developed, each downward column became a wide block that screamed for some type of design to fill it. To the left-added the rectangles, triangles filtered into the right one, and for the center I chose a grouping of random hieroglyphics type shapes.

Now time for transfer to a board and paint.

 

Next Monday the ‘Finished Painting’
