When I woke up yesterday, I didn't feel my usual drive to paint.
But then the alternative would have been to clean house and there
was no drive to do that! I needed a shot in the arm and had read about
painting on mylar so thought I'd give it a try. The surface isn't that
different from gesso but for some reason, it gave me permission to
focus more on the paint than the subject—experiment rather than produce.
When I look at this, it feels like I didn't paint it. Which might be a good
thing to clear out old preconceptions about how my paintings "should" look.
Thinking I'll use PVA glue to mount this to a gessoed panel . . . if anyone
has experience mounting mylar, please let me know what works best.
