i wait for you
mixed media on water colour paper
(ink, image transfer, handmade paper)
Remember this photograph? It's one of my favourites. I find it so evocative, sad, nostalgic, hopeful, romantic..... I had to use it in art somehow and I'm over the moon to have figured out image transfers. hint: the right polymer made all the difference. I LOVE combining photography with other media.
...but whatever came, she had resolved never again to belong to another than herself.

I'm still terrible at photographing art - just can't get the nuances to show. edit: I worked out scanning works better than photographing it! Hopefully it's enough.
Enough for what? Glad you asked. I plan on offering my art (SCARY) for sale (etsy I guess?) and this is the sort of thing I'll put out there.
You just gotta let go of doubts and all the crazy hang-ups we dump on ourselves and just take the plunge sometimes, right?
