Today I worked for quite some time in my art studio. I started by painting shellac onto the ends of drink skewers that I made from recycled magazines and wooden stirrers.
I then gessoed over a painting I really don't like.
Then I performed an experiment by gold leafing the end of a stick and lighting it on fire. I was surprised that the metal leaf burnt up.
While searching for the branch in the backyard, I slipped and fell. I spend some time afterwards photographing my wounds.
