Mind what you put on your knee!
I rarely rubbish work... I generally have a kind of notion and direction in which I'd like things to go. I had great intentions for this piece. It stated off well enough and after painting and painting more, repainting and repainting the repainting.. I realised I'd missed the point! A hissy fit ensued.. 'right come here you b*ta*d, I'm sick of the sight of ...!!!! etc! I put it over my knee and into four it was shredded!! Done!..
Feeling much better and considering the Dyson, laying neatly on the studio floor, a plan chest distance away and a quarter of it's original size was what I was trying to achieve.. It now makes for a nice visual and looks natty in a frame.. I shall go back to it.
So fellow artists and nosy folk... do mind what you shred, do mind what you put on your knee... 'and just be mindful that 'all may not be lost...'
A visual for something much bigger!
Was once 40x40cm, now 18x 20cm plus cardboard hanging over with a bit of floppy paper.
Acrylic on artboard etc..With additional temper tantrum and commitment.
