So it's the dreaded Black Friday, again.
Last year was fairly ghastly, with awful scenes
of violence and greed for 'stuff' such as tv's.
Ugh, it really was quite horrible.
Thankfully, this year it would seem that most the
battles have been online, with websites crashing.
Last year I took part in
Scott Wong's Flood The Streets With Art.
This year he's done it again, and so have I!
I made five little mixed media collages.
I kept them simple
(mainly because I left myself short of time!)
and made use of previously prepared backgrounds
(Gelli prints and painty underpaper) and I
dragged out some of my trusty vintage
National Geographic magazines
for picture inspiration.
I popped into Oxted this afternoon and left the
collages by cash machines and benches.
By the time I returned a couple of hours later
they had all gone - maybe into the nearest litter bin,
I'll never know!
It felt good to join in with this art movement
and I plan to do it again next year.
I'm actually looking forward to Good Friday!
Edit: 'Birds' Nests and Dragon's Blood' has
been found and the finder left this message for
me on the Flood the Streets with Art Facebook Page,
"I'd like to thank Jo Urbani for my free artwork today.
I found it stuck to a bench in Oxted and it made
my day. What a lovely act of kindness, thanks
Well that made my day!
