Lately, I have been just trying to find enough time to breathe and my art has consisted of the examples I have done in art class, like this one…
This is a photo of mine printed on photographic paper on an inkjet printer. The first thing I did was take some bleach and flick it with a brush on the photo. This created some distress marks on the picture. When I went to wash the photograph, to stop the bleaching process, much of the black ink that was in the tree got washed out and I smeared it with my hand. To get it to dry faster, I ironed it on a high setting. If you do this, do it in a well ventilated room and put a piece of paper over the photo or you could ruin your iron. Ironing it caused it to crack. I repeated the bleaching, washing, ironing process a few times. I ironed on some small bits of plastic and then added some packing tape transfers. I titled it “Evidence”
This is what I love to do, experiment, and keep asking “what if?” as I am going along. When I finished, I knew that I had started to “breathe” again.
Take care and thanks for reading!
