What if it all means something

This week I skipped my moleskin sketchbook and went straight for one of the wooden cradle frames that have been wasting away in my art supply box for months. I started with a page torn from a book about the sketches of Leonardo da Vinci, and slowly built the composition around it with the hat wearing male figure and butterflies. Everything else was added as I looked around my apartment and found more long neglected items I’d collected with the intention of using them for “something.” I still need to do some work on the sides of the piece, and I think I will add a bit of colour to the background using watercolours.

As pictured below, I made a huge mess all over the living room floor by the time I was done.

The mess
