MMM: I want to burn this page...

MMM: I want to burn this page...

The text says:
"Somedays paintings just don't work...

Somedays I do want to just tear them up and burn them

Somedays..."

I've not found any journal pages that I want to burn but plenty of pictures ;-)

But one of the problems with doing so much of my art work digitally is that I rarely have the pleasure of burning my pages... today's MMM challenge however gave me the immense pleasure of virtually "burning" my work!

Here is a detail from it before the burn:

Skeleton

It was inspired by some photographs of a dig in Bristol that unearthed Medieval skeleltons below the bus station.

it is a great mmm and you know what the pictures you have mixed are great. i like the colors and i was also imagining them without the texts on top of them. i thought it would be better.

there was a collage of pictures that i have made a long time agon and when i had it almost finished that i felt like throwing or burning them but, a sudden idea came and i started painting some colors on top and varnish it with a strong color-it turned out so beautifully.

I know this was posted ages ago. I looked at it, loved it like all your collages, but moved on. Now I just wanted to acknowledge it.

I very much like this piece!

The insect was good too - though I could not look at it long as it was a bit too realistic and I get creeped out by bugs too easily. however; quality wise; excellent likeness.

thank you - I hope you get over being bugged by bugs but I do know some people have such problems. Must have made IF - Insect week really tough for you!
