The one about the new background




My art group met last night and I forgot to take my camera again. We had loads of fun! I can't work much outside of my studio, but I did get this board started. I am not sure where it will end up; it will probably get more layering added before I am finished. I like the ribbons running through the whole thing. Making backgrounds is my favorite---I should just do a pile of them. Made on a 12x12 piece of chipboard. Magazine scraps, gesso, ribbon, watered-down ink, charcoal pencil, book pages.

I struggle with backgrounds. I think I have trouble letting go-I'm a control freak. Great work.
