This painting has at least 9 lives! It began as a canvas with a torn dark intaglio print collaged on the surface. Next muted acrylic was added, but just a tad. This was followed by stages of scrubbing with alcohol, layers of burnt sienna, scraping, covering with titan buff, aqua touches, antiquing, etc. And in between stages it was often taken back to the studs so to speak. At this point it will rest; it reminds me of a well worn comfy pair of Khakis.
Saturday is a Khaki kind of day. Have a good one!
