Painting for 3 days in a row has been an interesting challenge.
Today I learned how to pace myself as my layers dried. I realized that I was “lost in the moment” when doing the detail work. It is much easier to step away during paper placement on a background. Maybe that’s why my studio has many, many uncompleted backgrounds. (Yeah, we will go with that!)
Of course my hands are sort of worse for the wear since I washed each time I stepped away. I will have to bust out some serious lotion tonight!
Anyway, this collage was made with my little ones in mind. With Valentine’s day quickly approaching, it seemed appropriate. I am trying to work on details in my collages as well as knowing when it’s “done.”
Hope you enjoy it! Look for this one to be in my etsy shop soon!
