. . . created art papers




that were unique enough to almost stand on their own as pieces of art. I mean, look at that textured yellow gesso paper. The black spray-paint paper. The bit of purple that is becoming a favorite. But most of all, I'm loving the red. This is truly one of a kind paper. I painted tissue paper, which I had placed upon trashbags, with acra red orange. After it had dried, I pulled it from the surface of the trash bags and it had picked up bits and pieces of previous paints I had applied to other surfaces. Sometimes I guess it pays to be a bit sloppy or messy.
