I have no idea what to call this. I do not know how to present it, really. I have not actually decided it works, so I am sticking my neck out here to share it with you.
As you know I have been working on all kinds of things lately, in and out of the studio. Some of those things make me crazy, some frighten me (like creating a watermark) and some are pure joy. With this painting, you are looking at all three of these. It makes me crazy because it is on paper and you all know how I feel about framing, but I just could not help myself. It was fun to work on this large paper (maybe 18" x 24"). I also worked with something new which was a little scary. This has pearlized ink included in several layers. I was not sure how it would react, but it was fun to kind of squirt on, watch it move, squish it around or just let it sit there. The thing is, I also really lost myself working on this piece. It truly felt as though I was moving on air with it. I loved that feeling of being.
Now it comes down to this... what do you think of my experience? I hesitate to call it an experiment, it was truly an experience. Should I try to go this route again...if I can? Should I give up and leave the paper and ink alone? Is this worthy of a frame? What do you think?
I hope the world is treating you all beautifully here in almost Mid-March! I hope you are finding the time to be creative.
Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing with me your thoughts...I honestly appreciate each and every single one.
Have a Fantastic Day!
Sleep on it
