For this painting, I thought it'd be fun to create a pattern in the background before I started. I've been making my own stamps, so that's where I began. I used Distress Ink to stamp with because I like the idea of creating neutral outlines to paint in, on, or around. I thrive with boundaries like this. I know that sounds counter-artistic, but it's something that works well for me. This is going to be fun!
