A Saturday painting.
En Plein Air.

I kept diving through my studio
for mediums to fill the
light and space.

I couldn't leave well enough alone.
I had to layer, cover, smear, scrape and repeat.

Then again maybe it really wasn't
well enough

I used an old door
to support my assembled glued strips of 
printmaking paper.

Gel medium, tissue paper, netting and plaster
were used to create textures on the paper.

Ink, oil stick, charcoal, 
Stabilo pencil and conte crayon
were layered and layered and layered.

And it now hangs 
next to my
bathroom door.

Next to King Jack
under the bell jar.

In my ears...
