Vincent Ferrini Project

Here's the current progress. Have introduced the silver mirror, refined some of the shapes. Will keep working both sides. It will be backed with thalo green light and gold leaf. I work everything out on the surface. I rarely use preliminary drawings, but, I do use reference material.
Vincent would not look at my unfinished work, whether in words or visuals.
He admonished: the poem comes fully realized, or it is not a poem.
I try to leave each day's work 'fully realized', whole in that moment between action and inaction.
