Spread 212 – The Monkey On My Back

12 December 2015 – 20 February 2016

Vintage & personal images, matte gel, matte medium, Nova Color paints, black Micron pen, white Signo gel pen, pencil, white gesso.

Sometimes spreads take some time. This was started in a class with Orly in December and I finally “finished it” today. Are they ever really finished?

I am my own worst critic in life and art. I find that no one can be as mean to me as I have been to myself in my life. As I art journal layers are revealed and concealed. Old hurts are healed and that old monkey that is on my back becomes less and less a burden and more of a friend. Be kind to yourselves.

Edited. Thank you Thomas LaBadia for helping to make my images clickable & easy to enlarge again!
