Unfortunately this photo does not do the piece justice. Here I have an 11×14 canvas painted black with acrylic upon which I have mounted 12 pulled apart polaroids. I knew the film was expired but I wanted to experiment with that and see what I could do.
I never knew you could pull apart polaroid 600 film. I wanted to get into polaroid transfers so I bought a land camera which uses the polaroid 669 film (they don’t make that anymore). But you can get Fuji FP-100C instead. The camera takes wonderful photos in the daylight that is.
But for this work here I used a polaroid instamatic, I think. Well, I’m not a photographer or film expert. I am just a chick that loves art and creating stuff! This is my hobby. I tried selling on Etsy and that didn’t seem to take. Recently, I actually thought…well maybe I’m suppose to give this stuff away.
I strongly dislike selling stuff. I mean if people want to buy stuff I shouldn’t have to bug them about it. Well, that’s just the way my mind thinks anyway. I’m not a business or marketing major. My husband is, well was, I mean.
I just have to post this to let you know that I’m not dead! I just haven’t had time to create lately. But my goal is to get some work going here! I love art! I’m a starving artist. But technically, I’m not really starving!
