sky, sometimes falling

sky, sometimes falling; mixed media on paper

I made this painting last weekend, on a vintage map (which you can still see aspects of, in the background, most clearly at left). This morning I digitized it to see how it would translate onto various objects, such as an art print...

a carry-all pouch...

a notebook...
a phone case...

and others. There are times when art almost works better as merchandise. This particular painting was created very wet, and the effect, while still filled with detail, is very rough and ready, but the merchandising process transforms that, flattening and cleaning, applying a kind of gloss. And reproductions are completely valid, in their way.

Okay, onward and upward. Happy Wednesday.
