My favourite pastime at the moment appears to be ‘make over’. I have been working over St. Sebastion’s Wife for a few days now and finally I think the work maybe finished. I have posted the original and the ‘make over’.The new piece has several gel medium prints on silk from photos of my caryatids.

This is fantastic, first I love the idea of imagining Sebastian’s wife- I imagine she was long suffering. But most importantly your images are engaging.
I like how frank you are about the need to rework, often; I too must rework but often fail to record the progress of the work as admirably as you do.
thanks for sharing,
Thanks LG – having progress shots is sometimes serendipitous – I have a shot because I thought the work was finished. Sadly I am also really good at overworking an image and ruining it – I have been toying with the notion of a new series ‘saints and sinners’ but I still need to do a lot more background reading – St Sebastion’s wife is the first – a saint. Always appreciate your comments. cheers
Well you aren’t the only person able to nitpick a work to destruction , it seems to be favorite past-time of mine, rectifying “improvements”.
Eager to see more saints and sinners, I have a particular passion for saints ( and I suppose sin as well). I have a rather large collection of saints, images, statues, mostly 19th c., a few older. They really inspire the work, if not directly, at least compositionally.
until next time, take care,
I think there is much I can learn from you – I am really pleased I found your site thanks veronica
