I was cleaning up the studio this morning and found my old table cover folded and lying on a side table. It is made of freezer paper, so that I could just let the paint spill over onto the surface and smear and smudge. It stayed taped to the table for maybe a year, so there are layers and layers of paint. My original idea was to incorporate interesting portions of it into digital art, or offset the paint onto another surface (which I have done to a small extent.)
Today I selected a few 4″ square compositions from the huge piece of randomly paint-splattered and smeared paper and cut them out. Then I added one or two small collage elements here and there.
Sometimes composition is a process of selection and rejection of what is already there.
