3 finished pieces.
I only used one of the original photo collages I started with.
I wanted something with a bit less of a polished look. So I chose
a couple of my first paintings.
But how to attach? There are so many options.
After considering encaustic. I went with gel and matte medium instead.
I know these materials better. My experiments using encaustic are still to unpredicatable.
More on that someday.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the sides.
A solid color white or black would have been fine
but I wanted something "different". Whatever that meant.
I had a grunge ribbon around them for a while and I was about to
go with that when inspiration struck.
Laying on the desk top were writing scraps from
another printing experiment.
It was the perfect touch.
It was just what I was wanting.
