A 9×12 mixed media using everything but tissue paper. Where do I start? The bottom layer started out as very brite green & purple lily pads in sky blue waters. They had details in each pad that I kept simplifying as each layer built up. The waters kept getting transformed with each layer but the depth was getting deeper. For as much as I rubbed and scrubbed on this paper (130 lb cold rolled) it amazed me how well it held up. By the last few layers my touch became much softer as I was getting what I wanted from the process. By the end it bother me to put my name on it cause I felt like it was a blemish on the work . The title? I can’t imagine I took anywhere near as long as you know who did on his lilies.
