preparing for show 3

green vase
collage+acrylic on paper

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.
