What d'ya think—the two might go hand in hand, might go with taking more risks?
Funny story: I got going with an idea here that seemed doomed to irretrievable ugliness, glued its parts onto a handpainted scrap from my collage box, sandwiched the whole mess between two sheets of plastic with the weight of a few books on top, and wrote the opening two lines above while I waited for the glue to dry so I could assess the damages—sure I was writing about a total fail.
Complete surprise. I love this piece!
I'm still in shock. I actually achieved the effect I was aiming for but not at all in the way I'd set out to do so.
