"Hi Stephen, I think content and composition seemed to go a bit harder with this one. I had been doing a group of smalls so maybe the transition to a larger one made me think more. i appreciate your comment, thanks. "
"Wonderful as usual, to see your latest. Would it be too personal to explain why this one was a "hard one" for you? Process or content, or a combination of the two? I am glad you triumphed to create it!"
"Love the gold tinge, as if the fish is 3-d. Could you explain the process if you get the chance? Also, will all the news about bees becoming endangered I was wondering if there was also an ecological message in choosing the medium."
hello and thank you so very much for your kind and warm welcome, i do very much love your exciting collages, full of intrigue and wonder, and joy too! 'they will never learn' is such a lovely puzzle of a story. cliff
Thanks for the nice note! Yes, in the case of Abulic Terrain, I did construct everything—although in the Salvage series the basic rule I follow is to use found or discarded works of art as the element to build around Accordingly, I did not make the central painting. (I do use my own discarded work in that series though.) I have lots of boxes and will use them as needed, but I often have to build off them or just start from scratch for certain projects. I do a lot of my own framing and that helps me save on costs.
It took me awhile to find the location of your comment! ...not easy navigation!
Thank you for compliment on "Moonlit Eve".
I've only just started 'playing' with wax and love it! It's the prep/melting that takes time UNLESS you just use the little iron and drip, drip. Once I get started, I don't want to stop...but yes, it's the getting started!
Thx again...love your work!
