Last night and today, I started experimenting by dipping the magazine spine in red watercolor paint. I am going to continue this and see where it takes me. In the next couple of days, I may dip the spine in more paint and some shellac. I find this more refreshing than the constricted white paintings I have been completing. I am excited by pleasant mistakes, unpredictable results, and letting go of control.
