Artist's Description

This self-portrait work was started with graphite, pen and ink, and a soft white pastel. I also used a brown chalk to scumble in the background and I then used a large brush to blend the areas with water. After this preliminary drawing work, I selectively sprayed the piece with a sepia, gold, and black spray paint, to seal the drawing and create a varied tonal quality. I printed my hand in white gesso, then added the heart and expanding veins (which were drawn in with black ink, and painted with layers of red ink for a varied saturation). Finally the heartbeat line was overlaid with a blue tinted gesso. The original dimensions are 18in. X 12in. It was produced in 2008.
