Art is a journey

I rarely show my ugly pieces. Like this one. Wanted to share how art is a process…Scroll to see how this piece evolved. Art is truly a journey… this is a classic example….

Started with this drawing

This started as a drawing one evening. I wasn’t that happy with it but soldiered on.

Added ink and made it worse!!!

Added some ink on it. And made it worse😱 when that happens, I throw all caution to the wind. I have nothing to lose. Started scribbling everything that stressed me out onto the page. It was cathartic to do that by the way.

Glued strips of book pages to cover up the scribbles

Then I covered all the scribbles with paint and strips of book pages.

Added stamps, doodles, stencil with modeling paste

Then more paint, stamping, stenciling… softening the overall piece and she is finally at peace. So am I…

At peace

So, don’t worry if you mess up. Just let go and see what happens… you may be surprised to see where you end up…

    I rarely post but felt moved to do so today. Your persistence with this piece made all the difference in the world. I loved seeing how it evolved out of “ugliness” into something so therapeutic and beautiful. I have always loved your work because it speaks to me. Please know that there are people like me that appreciate you and your talent, but may not always comment. Thank you for sharing with us during these trying times of today. You do make a difference!
