Illustration Friday: Blanket -

"Buried Under a Blanket of Paperwork"
$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
The theme at Illustration Friday this week is blanket. As is often the case, I went strolling through the voluminous photographic files here at the secret visual laboratory and found this fitting snap. It seems like all I've done at my office this week is paperwork and my hope is that finishing this will put a final cap on things ... we'll see.

This is good. I like the colours and papers look interesting! Usually iäm not into papers and blankets, but in your pic, they look tempting.

Yes - paperwork can be overwhelming! I hope you do put a "final cap" on things soon, but in the meantime, this stack of paper makes a great work of art. If you get really frustrated, you could do some performance art and simply put it all in a pile and set a match to it... (the papers, that is, not the art:>)

The funny thing is that I don't even remember taking this particular photograph. Once rediscovered, I began the usual process of cropping, manipulating, filtering and layering ... plus, a new plug-in was put into play and it started taking shape. Anyway, I'm glad you like it, Susu. :)

LOL - have you been peeking at Rob D'Agostino's blog? As for the paperwork related to my job, now completed, it may lead to a rather interesting project down the road. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks very much, Deb. This stack of wire paper trays stands right across from my drawing table. It's really a catch-all for the papers I don't have time to sort but need to save. About once a year I have to dive in and make sense of it all ... and it's almost that time again! :O

I think I see my dining room table under there! Egads, I have to get to that pile.

LMAO ... thanks for the clue, Laurel. I was wondering whose table that was! :D
