I was amused to find an old project in a stack of papers this weekend. I started this collage triptych at a time when I was working full-time, studying towards another degree, and raising three boys. None of which I did with great distinction, I have to add.
I can only guess at my mood at the time of making this. It was probably laundry day (Saturday), as triangles of lint from the tumble dryer feature boldly. I also notice that I burnt holes in the paper, and in places entire edges have been destroyed. Hahahaha! Well, I survived, in fact, we all did, so that's great. A success story, so to speak.
I added a bit of paint and some embellishment yesterday. The sign language letters are symbolic. Geddit? Anyway, I am not quite finished yet. The painted areas must be reworked, and I want to add a spot of embroidery.
