Queen Anne's Lace is one of my favorite things on Planet Earth. It's beautiful in the breeze, it feeds pollinators and caterpillars, and every part of it is edible (it's wild carrot, after all). Every stage of its life cycle is appealing to me, even the dried seed heads.
Playing with a little macro lens I got right up in that inspiration.

Sketched a little. Actually, probably a lot, but I painted over most of them.

So I decided to lay the groundwork on the canvas...these images were pulled from my Instagram, and were taken in my makeshift basement painting studio, so they're not great but I like to show process shots.
|This stranger lives inside the painting forever.|
|I scratched into the surface like I was doing to my ceramics at the time.|
|Last step before adding ink and paint.|
|Weird I'd reference O'Keefe...not vaginal at all.|
