This is a new work that I started today. It is based off an old piece that I have reworked a couple of times now. The original piece was started on foil. I layered it with acrylic, colored over it with crayon, and added a bit of paper along the way. Yet, I have never felt I achieved a result where I could call it “done”. Hence, I have pulled it out and started embellishing once again. I’m sure I am headed the right direction this time as I already like it better than in its last incarnation. Today I merely added gesso to the surface and stippled it with crumpled wax paper. The gesso felt too heavy in some areas so I took a wet paper towel and wiped away some gesso away and then stippled it a bit more. It left this area that looks rather like a portal to me. My plan was to add a layer of tracing paper and create a piece rather like Winter Ascent. However, I need to let it sit a bit to decide whether that is the right direction. Work and wait – work and wait. Story of my art making!
