. . . wrested inspiration from
cracked concrete. Here is what I'm currently working on, just the beginnings. I haven't been in the studio for a couple of days. Happily, I was busy with Betsy and Joe yesterday. I don't know what happened to Thursday. . . did it occur? I don't remember it. Note that I am not using taped edges on this canvas, trying to keep anything of interest or any kind of material build-up away from the edges. I have marked roughly a 2-inch border, but only to keep the texture away from that area. Maybe this will solve the problem I mentioned the other day. My other thought is that on the next painting, I will use the tape until after the texture is applied, then remove it to paint. Only problem, I tend to apply texture throughout the entire process. I am so dim sometimes.
