"Enabled" Exhibit - Pricked

"Pricked" 11"x14" mixed media

this is 2 of 4 pieces that will be shown in the "Enabled" Exhibit from February 19 - March 12, 2010. "Enabled" is an exhibit of art created by artists with disabilities, at the Arts Guild of Rahway in Rahway, NJ. Opening reception: Sunday, February 21, 2010, 1-4 pm

So this painting is really exciting to me. i haven't done a painting like this in a very, very, very long time. almost everything i've done in the past year or two have been carefully planned. in the past, i would just get a basic idea in my head and make it up as i go along, sticking to the initial concept. that is what i did here. i love each individual part of it, and it was a very fun and liberating painting to make. as silly as it sounds, it felt really good to paint this. i need to start painting like this way more often.
I thought it might be cool to show part of the process for anyone who's interested!
