Slip sliding away

Slip slidin' away

2006-2009
86 x 92”
collage, Mylar, gesso, ink on Okarawa paper
Thoughts about painting (Guston in particular) and an experiment with red – how soon and how much will fade to pink and will the piece still work when it does. Around the edge I glued My Days are #ed,(a 3 x 6’ work on gessoed paper where I commemorated my days on earth, alternating black and blue ink) which I cut into 3/16th inch strips. Over many of the images I love I float in my house on the marsh in a large bubble accompanied by bubbles filled with museums, books etc.
