Monica's Swami Beyondananda

How about a little colour out there?
I love this piece by fellow Edmonton Calligraphic Society member Monica Robertson & thought you would too. It's quite large and really draws you in to take a closer look. The quotes are by Steve Bhaerman. Monica calls it “Swami Beyondananda” and this is what she had to say about it:

"Our study group decided to explore layering for the ECS library project. I immediately went to “Swami isms” and contacted Steve Bhaerman. He very graciously endorsed the idea, i.e. no copyright infringement. I enjoyed the freedom of the layering process. (If you don’t like it, cover it up.) I began with 140 lb. w/c paper, masked off areas with masking tape, and poured, painted walnut ink and watercolor, then lettered, then collaged, then painted, then lettered."
She makes it sound SO EASY!

Monica did what I have always wanted to try, a piece that becomes more of a painting with layers of colour and massive amounts of text. Isn't it interesting that "text" creates "texture"! Thanks for putting it on your blog Francie.
