What is about an old wall that’s so exciting? I’m having fun playing with wall textures. It’s a challenge to convey the process of slow aging; to make a painting of an old wall look like the result of a natural process over time. My intentional mind gets a bit stressed when I ask it to create something that looks unintentional; it feels like I’m asking it to walk the edge of chaos.
Well, not really, paint is wonderful stuff. You can scrub and scratch it and it only gets better; well, most of the time.
Both are part of a new series of 5″x7″ mixed media works on mounted paper.
The theme of the series is “things found hanging on the wall”.
