Meditation 1

This is a progression piece in two scenes. They will not be hung like this, but side by side.

The sheen on the red leg is from the camera.

The subject is one of the first meditations I ever attempted when I was in high school.

Brussssshhhhhhhhhhhhht


A new wallpaper collage, creating using a new glue formulation in order to lessen the acidity of the final product. A preservationist recommended this: Methylcellulose with some Polyvinyl chloride for durability.

It is interesting to me that somehow I am better with color subtlety and harmony using collage than I am with paint. Somehow the limitation to certain colors patterns and textures is helpful in my creative process and I do not experience the kind of high-stakes stress that I do when I paint.
