Crossing a Bridge

For me, one of the fun parts of crossing the bridge from 2017 to 2018 has been prepping one of my paintings to leave my home so it can take up residence in the home of a collector.

Probably Out of Earshot is excited as it puts its best foot forward to step into a wider world.

Originally painted on paper, it is now mounted on a block of wood painted with a black satin finish. The black paint 'frames' the image on the front of the wood block and provides a backdrop on the other side for a haiku I composed, along with info about the painting.

Very satisfying.
