Work in Progress
I have become increasingly interested in how to merge the printed surface with the painted one. I bought a slew of board -masonite and cradled birch - which hold up better to layered work than stretched canvas. My first attempts were conservative - just a repositioning of work, with some layers of paint on top:Then I took some more problematic pieces - heavily painted linen that had defied me for months, and made it the base for new collage:Yesterday a larger piece of the bird fabric became ground an old photo and further layers of paint and paper. I think there is an idea here. Bad photo, but good idea. I keep circling around trees, text, time.
