a lot of patience

i've always been an artist
who has to work on several pieces at once
i have to see results quickly and
produce something to feel satisfied
i've taken 6 classes with heather gentelman
and have been learning how to create texture
i haven't been concerned about mass producing
just practicing layer upon layers
and seeing what will and can happen
which requires a lot of patience
which i've been learning from heather
---------------
above, a detail of a work in progress
inspired from a photo of a wall taken in philly
i made the star from roof flashing and
added a rust finish
another " work in progress" project
layers of browns, lots of copper leaf,
more wax of shades of blue
and more copper leaf
back and forth, scrapping in between
----------
i'm hoping to finish
one of these boards in
next weeks class

Nice work..and you sound like me! Hurry and see the end result! I think that is why I have turned so frequently to photography!
