Ready to Hang
I paint over my pieces a lot, so you could say they don't stick around too long unless I really like them.
This piece has under it, at least, three different paintings, maybe four.
They're all gone! ...Or are they? Even though this painting is light in appearance it has bones and meat; it's rich. To me it has weight. I know its history. It's gone through one visceral transition after another- obsession and anger, compassion and peace, confusion and clarity, and joy. At one point it was a part of a community of other canvases that made up one piece I titled, "Becoming hard in a soft place." Each piece I make is a documentary, needless to say, and if I happen to paint over it each new painting takes some of what was there before with it into its next life.
