I have collaged some paper to this painting now. I am not really impressed with it but at least I did not ruin it. I believe that I just need to add more paper and paint. I used Japanese paper in some places and plain tissue in others. I am thinking about cutting up old book pages into letter shapes and adding a word or two. I will paint over it so that it won't be immediately obvious.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
