Acrylic and Fiberglass on Canvas
54 x 48 inches
(This painting builds on the "Translucent Series" by changing from working on paper to working on canvas. Also the grid element has been added by use of fiberglass in the large central area.)

How itchy did you get using the fiber glass?

I used latex gloves. Only trouble is forgetting to change them when the fingers wear through. Buy a big bag, for cheap. (Oh, and remember when washing the brushes... they have fiberglass in them now! Live and learn.)

Thanks for the link, gregory. His recent pieces resemble Mark Tobey's approach.

Interesting how painters' work seems to loosen up as they shed the concepts of what is expected in a painting.

yeah, now i am gluing hanks of twine onto plywood and pouring automobile enamels on them. plus, you know, some glitter.

don't know if you googled him, one of the early links had him talking about his art, and his words reminded me of your words lately about the painting process...

enjoy, gregory
