No expectations… nice result

Expectation is a strange thing. When I start a piece of work hoping for something special, I often end up disappointed and scratching my head for ideas. A week ago, my two art buddies, suggested a “warm up exercise”… getting an image of a face and painting over it heavily. Over the next four nights the picture grew for me. Both in size as I extended it beyond the original collaged piece, and in texture and depth. Dress making pattern was added to her face; as was gel medium transferred writing, leaves, twigs and sequin waste stencil patterning. I enjoyed making this piece and at the end… I conclude, no expectations = nice result. Amazing what one can do without any pressure from within to create “art”.
