I experimented with spray paint this evening when I got home. A long time ago I made a damask pattern stencil, as well as a bird one I made a couple months ago. I dragged a bunch of large sheets of paper, a face mask, and a bag of spray paint out into the alley and went to work (didn't feel like polluting my studio with fumes). After about 30 minutes of work I had some really nice results. I love how messed up and raw it all looks. I layered the sheets of paper into my paintings, and I like how it came out. Hopefully when I tear back down through the surface I'll be able to reveal some of these layers.
I also sent an email to my Hamburg boss asking for a letter of recommendation. Hopefully he'll be able to do this for me.
I worked 86 hours last week. F#@!*ng brutal and insane.
