. . . get a kick
out of these little accidental pieces of art made on foamcore with the leftover paint and texture material on my painting tools. This one is very crunchy; I would almost have to include a depth measurement along with the height and width (which is about 5 x 6".) I didn't really pay much attention to this one until I put the black mat on top of it and then it seemed to take on an exaggerated importance. Pay no attention to the white spots on the mat; my scanner bed needs to be cleaned from something I scanned that hadn't completely dried.
The trick for me on these experiments is to know when to stop. But actually, I can't screw them up, because they are total serendipity. And the more layers to them, the more interesting they become. I need to remember this when I'm making the "official" art. . . everything I do in the studio is a lesson, an experiment, gaining knowledge by doing something, anything. . . living up to the "what if I" tried this or did that.
