After much deliberation I have finally finished this huge painting. 'Wet Bandaids, Limp Handshakes' Spray Paint, Acrylic and collage on canvas (72 x 52 inches) 2011.
After finishing a major work I'm always busting to start another, to try and keep that high consistent - but unfortunately I think art making is an ebb and flow, or rather a series of highs and lows that reach a peak upon the completion of a work then ease away again only to come back stronger and more urgently in the form of another idea.
Today was a good day because I felt like I have resolved this work. I dressed for the 1950s vibes, pinning my hair and wearing my (faux) fur coat which was nice, I've been living in the 70s for a while so it felt good to be among the familiar faces of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly.
