preparing for show 4

collage+acrylic on paper

a good step done: all pieces for the show are photographed or scanned and put on records. pretty low-tech records (on paper files!) but records nonetheless.

preparing for show 3

step #3 in preparation of show: varnish pieces. not only do the colors really come alive but the UV protection will keep inks from fading in light. (after all, i am using torn paper from sometimes cheap sources.)

this step makes me a bit nervous. once done, i have to consider the pieces off-limit. no going back and correcting and re-working, which always seemed possible with oil.

the second step in preparing for show is simple enough: making sure all pieces are signed. sometimes the whole name, sometimes only my monogram.
