This painting was started before I left for my class in Tucson. I wanted to wait to see what I might learn that I could use to make it more interesting. I found the idea of the underpainting with pencil marks and ink very useful. If you zoom in on the cross line from right to left you can see these marks. I especially like this look with the cheesecloth threads...makes those fine lines look more random and cool... the flow with molding paste is also very different from earlier paintings as it has geometric shapes of cloth embedded in it along with the cheesecloth and yarn. It is still very much me but still different than before.
The piece of jasper I bought while at the Gem Show in Tucson in February....Tucson has had an influence on my art this winter!!
