You can’t always get what you want – and sometimes that means you get what you need. Limiting factors can make more interesting pieces. For example, sometimes, I couldn’t get a good enough photo to do a large painting. So I started making these “snapshot” paintings with lots of small images. And the result is a more complete picture, showing more than one angle and more than one moment in time.
Each of these are done on a single sheet of paper, no cutting or pasting. In general, I’m using a 3″ grid to start with. So, below, the image of the mom is 3″ by 6″. The two square images are each 3″ x 3″.
