Amidst sorting my photos and collage material from our Virgin Islands travels, I'm also trying to finish a few paintings started before my trip. I was embarrassed to realize that I started this painting seven weeks ago. That's such a long time!
Painting script on a collaged piece is a little daunting for me - it has to be just right and sometimes that takes many hours and many tries, amassing piles of rags covered in paint I've wiped off and lots of frustration - so I think I put it off in favor of smaller pieces. I mixed up some ink and got to work last night, finishing the hard part (sewing through four layers of polaroid, paint, paper, and canvas) this morning.
I'm excited with how this painting turned out after all that time being afraid of messing it up. It's going to the print shop tomorrow.
