For my master copy with a contemporary flavor, I chose Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa; I wanted the hands to give a sense of mass mindlessness, this play with being sucked into a little game and a faceless community. Really, I just wanted to doodle some hands.
I had the opportunity to attend IlaSahai Prouty's Art of Experience: Facilitating Community-Based Art at Penland during a two-week summer workshop. I became closer to the people there in two weeks than some of the relationships I held back home. We held a picnic during the second week, a communal activity with each person sharing a gift with everyone in our group. I created little prints/napkins on Rives BFK with everyone's faces as a memento of our time together—lovely companions and all the feels.
