This is a new 12x12 piece that was the result of an experiment I attempted after reading about it in one of my art books. First, I covered the panel with pieces of printed paper, then covered it lightly with gesso. When that was dry, I added another layer of various colored papers and once again covered it with gesso. When that dried, I tore pieces of the paper off and sanded the papers until I liked the look of the piece. The rick rack was already on the panel as a part of a previous painting. It was a lot of fun to work on, but the dust from the sanding made a terrible mess in my studio and made me cough. For that reason, this will probably be a one of a kind painting. I do really like it though.
