papers in progress...

This an example showing a painting in progress. The center painting is constructed of two separate 12"x12" acrylic painted papers roughly torn into strips and then woven together. (One corner is turned up to show the reverse side).

After the weaving process, over stamping was done on the reverse/back side and a transparent glaze of acrylic paint was applied to the front side. The terms 'front' and 'back' are often interchangeable. I'm still working to see what subject emerges from this one. It's somewhat like playing "peek-a-boo".

The surrounding papers will be further glazed, stamped, torn and further processed until a subject or theme emerges. A few final touches will be added and the finished painting will be laid aside awaiting framing.
