4×4″ acrylic, collage
This started with a scrape of acrylic, then I brushed acrylic all around the edges, then adhered a couple of strips of a cut-up old painting on top. And that is that. Just under the wire.

I have a collage I was going to post today, but it just isn’t ready. So, I did some doodling with new markers and this is the result. It’s been a busy couple of weeks with framing and matting daily janes that recently sold. I don’t miss the pressure of creating a daily jane every day, but I do appreciate how it got me making on a very regular basis. It obviously hasn’t been as consistent or frequent this year, but I hope that the benefits of the practice will remain fresh in my mind.
9.5×7.5″ acrylic on matboard
This week, I revisited this old painting, adding new paint in the background and over the whole thing. In the original, I was imaging pain I was having several years ago. It began as an abstracted figurative form with a splotch of dried paint collaged on. Now I think it looks kind of map-like. So, even though the piece looks completely different now (and that pain is all but gone), I wanted to include part of the genesis of the painting in the title.
