It wasn't going to be a good painting anyway. Tear it, burn it but shoot it first. This could be the story of my life. I messed up the painting (on the back of a Farrow and Ball wallpaper) teared it to pieces and placed it in front of the fire place to burn it. It looked good then. As a photo subject, with its light, free movement and life, it has all the qualities the painting didn't.

As one with a great fondness for texture ( especially ripped paper ) -
I find this to be quite a pleasing
"mess" ... .
as well as an inspiration for my own
collage.

From painting to photography...this explains that. I think it's my favorite photo of this year.

Who cares about the painting, it surely made a dynamite photo!!! Sometimes things are better in different forms. Well said.
