Variety is my Spice

Work in progress.

I seem to need to have alot of pieces of work on the go... I just keep moving from one to the next... I never know if I will finish anything in a day or if suddenly 2 or 3 pieces will come together and feel complete. I also need alot of variety in my processes... so in between painting, I will be collaging or making paper or making journals.

This is a piece I have been plugging away at for awhile. I started by collaging tissue and rice papers onto the canvas support. Some of the papers were already painted and some were white or cream. While it is all still wet I like to introduce the paint [ink, watercolours] so it creeps into the papers creating cool mixtures and textures. Then I will let that dry and have an interesting surface to work on...
