It was heartbreaking. Some of the pieces had technical issues and others were not fully resolved. But mostly there were a number that were just too big, too complicated, and too difficult to deal with in terms of content. They were multiple panel pieces which were based on grids of large gelatin silver prints that I had then over painted with oil paint. They were difficult to print as photos because they were so large, hard to set up to paint and then really hard to paint because of their complexity and size. They were hard to photograph and frame, and very difficult to show people because of the multiple panels. Most were done in the early 90's.
