. . . experimented with stuff
I had laying around. This small painting on canvas is based on a paper shop towel that I had used to clean brushes or sop up extra paint on a bigger piece. After I rinsed the paper towel, I attached it to the canvas with extra-heavy gesso and medium. Then I just kept adding the odd bits of leftover paint to it. I wanted to find out if the paper towel would stay in place on the flexible substrate of canvas. Still don't know for sure, but this one doesn't look too promising.
This one incorporates parts of a paper towel, as well as parts of deli paper and even some pieces of plastic bags. No rhyme or reason to any of it, just experimenting to see what would happen. . .
