I painted the tissue paper with inexpensive metallic tempera paint. I really like the look of it. The paper appears sheer but metallic. It is really hard to capture a digital image of it. I am not exactly sure how I will use it so it will get stashed away for now.
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.
