Is it okay to say that I am totally in love my own work? Sounds pretty gutsy to me but I just said it anyway. But, believe me, I don't always love my work. In fact, now that I think of it, I frequently Like my work but seldom Love it. And, sometimes I Hate it. Guess I just opened up a giant self-defeating can of worms. For today then, I love my scraps! Maybe one day I'll love a whole, entire, wonderful piece.
These scraps of textured handmade paper were created with a variety of materials: artists' acrylic paints, latex house paint, spray paint, oil pastels, bitumen, mineral spirits, stencils and more. After scanning the scraps, I've played with them a bit in Photoshop too which gives them even more cool effects. The ones I'm showing you here are not digitally altered in anyway.
On this very white and snowy day, I wish you the opposite: a colorful day.
