plaster, gouache, ink, gold leaf, paper, thread, gesso, graphite
I can’t decide if this is finished quite.
I can’t decide whether it’s already a step too far
(the graphite handwriting)…
and whether that means I’ll need to claw it back
by burying some of what’s visible under
more layers of white/colour/paper/ink etc.
It hasn’t even told me it’s name yet,
which is odd.
The page is from a wonderful little book
that I picked up secondhand ages ago,
called “To Please Myself Again.”
That’s all I can hear in my head,
when I think about it.
It’s taken over.
So this is to please myself.
