Everyone has a word path. One word leads to another.
My goal is to present three to five words or three to five lines.
I may go to seven words or seven lines but probably not often, only if needed.
My supplies for the day. My trusty palette, liquid frisket for knock out effect of type, my all time favorite gouache for the background wash and the throwaway brush for the frisket.
I have a few versions to share as I progressed to my final pick.
I had fun with these, all pieces are done on watercolor paper. I used frisket in art school, but I haven't thought about it in years until I was inspired by fellow blogger Lynn Richards. She authors a blog called BlueSkies. In one of her Art Everyday Month pieces she used frisket. I like having options in working out my Word Paths artistically while maintaining my style.
This last version still has the frisket where all the letters appear to be brown. I liked this brown on black effect so I stopped before removing the frisket to photograph it. I like to mix brown and black in outfits I put together to wear maybe that is why it appeals to me! The frisket has been pulled off where the letters appear white. Random in design but effective I believe. This version inspires me to paint brown type on black for future projects.________________________________
Here is my word path for today
Hold Me for All Time

I love the romance of these words. They feel like an old film. Time, ever elusive stands still for that second of that embrace, that hug, that snuggle, that welcome, that hold.
Happy Weekend • Hold onto Someone Tightly • Enjoy the Language of Words
