This little painting is a remake of this one. I wasn't satisfied with how the first one came out, and I wanted to make the text more prominent. Now I fear I've made it too prominent. Sometimes I can see for certain if things are working, and other times I just blindly plunge ahead and see what happens. This is an example of the latter. Looking at it now, I see that I should have placed "the loudest" a bit lower on the page. Or maybe higher....yeah, I think higher. I might monkey around with this a little bit more next week. Everything is cemented down with matte medium, but I could always layer something more on top. I love this kind of problem solving, because it always ends with a surprise.
I recently discovered these altered book drawings by Jen Koshbin. I love them.
