The original paintings make themselves on my body. While traveling I use any finger nail polish I can access, I add layers of paint and photograph them as they change from wear and tear. The final photograph is scaled similar to a portrait painting. I am recognizing an accessible female decorative trend and the inaccessible male dominated abstract expressionism movement. To be continued.
