I'm Back

Time Dance 12x12

June has disappeared, but now I am back. Here is a new painting called Time Dance. It may explain the time warp I have been in. This painting utilizes a new type of transfer called pulled paper that will be in the Surface Treatment book that will be out next year. The technique works with ink jet or newspapers. Simply apply some polymer medium to the surface, place the newsprint down and rub. Hum the Jeopardy song twice (or about 30 seconds if you don't know the song) and then pull the paper off. Some of the text stays and some from the reverse side is also glued on. This is a very abstract and rough transfer, but you can see that it adds an interesting graphic quality to the layer.
