Building Backgrounds


I'm planning to keep adding layers and textures...
colors, oil pastels, charcoal...?
A great way to use up all those little scraps that accumulate...
or junk mail with interesting designs and images that you can't make yourself toss...
I may just copy and use for pieces in future art...
or Not?

Discover YourselF...

Do you see the hidden boarding pass....
and the bits and pieces of maps....?
One of the best things about layering
are all the pieces
in the paint.....
Sometimes, I am the only one who knows
they are there....
and what their meaning is....

Also so pleased to be a part of Seth Apter's Style File today along with a wonderful group of artists!
Do pay him a visit and peruse all the Style File Chapters that he has so generously shared on his blog The Altered Page.

Wishing all a peaceful week.....
