This Copic marker drawing was rescued from the waste basket,
got photographed but ended back there in the end. RIP little blue bird & protea.

Did you really toss it? (It looks fine to me.) He looks like he is desperately trying to land on that rock!

Oh no... but they are so wonderful. Could they have been used as a collage at least in another piece?

hi Geninne~
thanks for sharing this, I believe it is important for all people to see that artists do not just sit down and magically (easily) create. Often times on studio visits I show people the art pieces that did not make the final cut. I have an extremely critical eye & only display pieces I Feel 110% positive about.
best wishes*

i once threw away a piece i did in college. oh i wish i had not done that so my kids could see it. my professor had liked it and took a slide of it (dating myself, eh). that is all I the way it was not as good as the little blue bird...who really does look like he wants to land on that rock. can I have your trash? :)

It looks like an image from a very sophisticated game of paper, scissors, stone - where obviously here the paper wins by wrapping up the stone - I think you have been rather strict on yourself - what was it you didn't like?

it's always such a pleasure to visit your blog... your journal collection is absolutely fantastic! I can only imagine how beautiful they all are on the INSIDE!! Your work always has me drooling (and coming back for more). :-) Thank you so much for sharing. xoxo

Hi Geninne,
I am also curious as to why you would throw this beauty in the trash. Tell us please :)

Have you used copic markers on other works? Usually the copics are used to make manga drawings. I am really curious on how you work with them. It is a bit difficult to see on that crumbeled piece (allthough it looks beautiful!)

Dear Geninne,
I have said this before, and i will say it again (since i can't get tired of expressing it) your work is literally soothing! I feel like you are able to transport people to other states of mind!

Before I ramble, I would just like to say that I have Awarded you the Versatile blogger award and, as the VBA rules state, I have shared your blog with my small world on blogger :D

Wow, it is surprising to me that you could bare to let that one go! It's beautiful. & the crumpled looks makes it even more amazing.

I love the way it's all crumpled ...can't believe it's fate lies in the waste basket :(

ooooh, yo creo que la papelera no era su sitio. Podrías haberlo planchado, aunque a mí me gusta también así, con textura!

Kill your darlings!! (is what we hear in art school all the time, so I guess it is something important)
There is nothing wrong with being critical about your work. I think I would find that very difficult without my fellow students (and friends) around to give me a critique now and then.. My non-art school- friends think everything I make is fantastic.. Which is nice, but not always helpful ;)

I do like the bold shapes of the flower though.

I love the brightness of copic markers.I am surprised you didn't Make it look old and use pieces of it with all the crinkles. Oh well, you can't keep everything.

The crumpledness adds beauty, the rock adds contrast, the trash-can adds tragedy. A whole story in one photo. Thank you!

I can see why you tossed it Geninne, because it is definitely more "plastic" looking than your usual pieces without the depth and personality of your watercolors. I know that after working on this it was still hard to toss, even after looking at it a second time. I always think that I "can use it for something else." Still, I applaude your experimenting with new media. Sorry it didn't work out this time. Hugs from Alaska.
