Using oils and cold wax means only being able to put on one layer at a time, as each can take up to a week to dry. It's been a few weeks since I've been to painting class, meaning there was no memory of what the original intent was for these pieces. During the beginning critque there were comments about the light pretty colors.

Rubbed, scraped, scratched- using an old library card, paper towels, cheesecloth, chopstick and toothpick.
There was a lot of noise coming from my corner, the other students probably wondered what all the ruckus was.
There was yelling, too, but I kept it inside of my head.
I don't know if anything was exorcised, but I wore myself out.
