Woman with Spots 2010
Woman with Spots was one of the first pieces that I did incorporating the photographic transparency with the paint underneath. The face is me from my thirties. I was trying out a facial cream which involved putting white mud like stuff on my face, letting it dry, and then washing it off. I couldn't tell the difference from before and after, but I liked the way my face looked with the white on it. It was a strong piece, but there was something that wasn't quite interesting enough because of the straight, unaltered photo. In the end, I painted over it, and now all that exists is this digital record on my hard drive. **
**I came back to this panel, was able to remove the paint and resurrect the image. It now hangs in the home of my good friend, Colleen Schwend, and I'm glad I pulled it back into the world.
