Erin C. Carr is young artist working and traveling through the real and imagined. Currently living in Southern Arizona.

When Mexico and Phoenix where getting thrashed by the rain and having major flooding, here in Tucson we were pretending that we lived in the Pacific northwest. after a day or more of rain we had mushrooms all over the place. 

My little garden helper.

Last night I came home knowing I need to get more into the gallery. I pinned this to my new studio’s wall and stared at it a while. I made some marks with pastels and charcoal, trying to figure out what how I”m going to go forward with this thing. I realized, before I went any further it needed to be blocked (which I’ve never done before) and some pieced needed to be redone and tidied up. 

So here it is in all it’s marked up, naked, and soggy glory. Seeing as how it will be about 90 today, it shouldn’t take long for it to dry. 

I really would like to make a cloth and embroidered snake. I’m trying to figure out the best way to do it, without loosing the vision of what I want it to look like. I want the scales to look neat and stand out. I was thinking reverse appliqué but I don’t think I could cut the fabric uniformly that many times that small.
Hummm.

Just plain’ around with watercolors and a water pen brush thingy…

Snake- WIP
This is a dream image. I used a page which had been over worked before it got to what I wanted it to look like, so I”m just gunna go with it.

In This House - WIP
I’m not sure if this will be finished any time soon. I will probably come back to it in a few years when I’m able to move out on my own again. This was when the house was a horrid place to be. Luckily through an eviction and some work and cleansing it’s getting better.

An update on that still life everyone seemed to enjoy so much. 
I found working with the inktense blocks easiest if I used them like a water color almost. I need to work on getting deeper darks and “blacks”. But it was fun. I think it turned out okay.

A mandala and some scribbles. I believe it’s part of a quote (continued on the  next page) from a Neil Gaiman book. There is a show line up of a show I went to in Salt Lake where a few bands from AZ were playing.
