The Masters of Slow Art

Mixed media artist are the masters of slow art. They have to be because everything must dry. And if you also spend a lot of time deconstructing (subtracting partial layers), it must dry thoroughly, often 24 hours to be safe. So I do work on many pieces at once. What follows is 4 more layers (I’m ahead of myself) and a glimpse at two other paintings further along.

This is actually 2 layers, paint, and then more glued shapes. Not enough texture yet.

You've seen this before. More gypsum.

Now more paint. A thin layer almost poured. Not sure what this will be.

If you've gotten this far without going to sleep, then know that the pieces will start to look like this. Two others not finished, but getting there.
