This will also go into my Contemplation Series as Contemplation 7. It is a 12 x 24 deep, gallery wrapped canvas and obviously Mixed Media. With this one, the rice paper really stuck well...I was too generous I suppose. Anyway, I dry brushed several layers over the rice paper, then highlighted specific areas of the rice paper scrunches. It didn't seem complete to me, so I lived with it a couple of weeks. It kept calling me back, then I realized I needed something strong and more severe to balance out the softness of the background. So on went the black squares. It was just what the painting needed, I think.
As usual, I will not sign the front so it can be hung the way it best works in a variety of settings. But I thought it would be interesting to ask you how you best like seeing it? Vertically, it is much stronger and like windows, but horizontally, it is more restful like benches.
Seeing this on the web, out of context, makes a huge difference in how it would really be viewed. But I thought the answers would be fun...and it might make a difference in how I show it on the web, too.
Who knows, though, someone might want to hang it obliquely! :)
I hope you have had a lovely weekend and are looking forward to a wonderful week. I can't wait to hear from you.
