Spray paint freedom

Posted on Updated on

Recently I watched a video on painting with spray paint.  The artist (whose name I can’t remember) talked about the sense of freedom she had with using spray paint as her medium.  You can layer.  Stencil.  Let it run.  Don’t like it?  Spray back over it.  I tried it for the first time this morning and enjoyed the process.  I will definitely do it again.  Perhaps on a day when I don’t need rocks to keep the paper from flying away…  I used a glossy paper and will keep these for inclusion in a junque journal.

I especially liked this final painting — partly because the stencil stuck to the paper and tore off the top layer of the paper when I tried to remove it.  I tried to redeem the torn part and like how the words are indistinct.  The whole thing says something about identity to me.  I think the woman herself is beautiful, creative, and strong.
