"Odyssey" because this painting has been through more life and trauma than most of my pieces. i overloaded this painting with ink (too much liquid and a lot of colors). the puddles formed and were beautiful; i wanted it to stay like that. but it was fleeting. i knew it'd change in 5 minutes as the ink swirled around as it desired. interacting colors. doing what they wanted. i came back every 30 minutes to witness the new movement. got impatient with one puddle; started to meddle with the drying. should've left it alone. made a bigger mess. but it dried and it was beautiful and messy and deep and meaningful. my niece got into my room when i left it unattended. she crumpled it up. i screamed. it now has permanent indentions on the paper from that episdoe. i put it under my giant VOGUE coffee table book to flatten it out. i also used nail polish and oxy clean to get off some unwanted ink splats. but i love it so much, with its journey of ugly pain, frustration and puzzling beauty.
