Time for something serendipitious while I wait for yesterday's grisaille to dry. I ripped a random page from an Art in America magazine to paint on. The page is mostly text and within it was this subhead: "Artists are like romantic heroes engaged with towering crises or like prophets of a gauzy future". Oh really? Typical heady Art in America type stuff! Well, painting on a printed page is very unusual...and I love how the type shows through the image. It is liberating to paint on something that is an untypical support.
