Mixed media project – undone

I dislike getting stuck on my art projects, but that’s what I am – stuck.  It’s actually quite a frequent phenomenon in my art-making.  I usually have about three or four projects halfway completed because I just get to a point where I’m stuck and I haven’t figured out how to proceed, or I’m missing that one element or that one quote or that one word that would tie it all together.  And I can’t find the right skeleton key (I have three different kinds, none of which really work well).

So…now, I’m stuck.

But I wanted to show of one of my  works-in-progress:

It’s a combination of metal elements, paper, acrylic paint and stamps in a sort of vaguely steampunk-ish/travel style on wood canvas (also called “cradle board” for some reason…I think).

And I’m stuck.  I can’t even come up with a unifying theme, a title or even a inspiring quote to use.


Don’t know what steampunk is?  I’ll tell you what it’s not.

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again

    Thank you so much.

    There’s really not much to it, just being able to glue pieces on in a pleasing fashion. It’s like being a kindergartener all over again. 🙂

    I’m just playing around, having fun.
