(un) Dressing The Bride

More old Polaroids. These are about 12 years old, found them in another drawer the other day. the idea here was that I was going to paint a nude, then add clothes slowly, scanning at each stage, until I ended with a fully dressed bride. Then all the layers would be put into photoshop and mixed around. A fine idea still, I think, but I lost interest at the time. I often have a problem with larger projects of loosing the creative passion mid stream. In profesional work you soldier on at this point and hope something comes out that has a shread of the original inspiration to it. But with personal work I often find my self abandoning the project. It's still in the basement somewhere and you never know when something might come back to vibrant life. You never know.
