These are three steps in the collage process. I started with one of the uglier paintings, figuring I could hardly make things worse. I added a bit of metallic gold ink, which didn’t do a whole lot to help matters. The hand print was a step in the right direction, though. I like the way the metallic gold ink shows through the black ink of the hand print even though the black ink is on top. (And, for once, the metallic quality of the gold ink is actually showing up.) With the addition of a piece of mirror and some tiny chicken rib bones the piece is, I think, complete.
