This series of paintings is representative of what you take "off" instead of what you put "on"!

Since back to work from vacation,  I've slid into a method of painting of letting the paint stain the canvas, then covering it with more paint, then scraping off to show whats underneath. It's a process of "balanced" elimination.  Here I'm playing with my favorite color red, where the others below are more of the fall colors. The more I play with this method, the more curious I get and the more I want to explore it! It has me enthralled!  The canvas almost looks like fabric where I've scraped off the top layer. It's very soft which is so unlike my past style. I need to get some large canvases and really go to town with these! Cheers!
