I have paintings that are both unfinished and abandoned
Stacked in a corner, I've turned my back on them.
I was either stuck, or the work no longer felt or looked right to me. What felt right, was to put them aside, and start something new...
There was a point in time that I would use duct tape as an element of painting, masking off sections, incorporating it in the paint itself, or using it as collage. I began to mask off parts of my old paintings and then paint over them. I was very loose with the application and not sure how it would come out until I pulled off the tape. The piece on the right and the three below are of prototypes for the series. All had been worked on before and then reclaimed.
The painting above is titled: Unmasked/Forty Degrees and it was part of the ARTdemic online exhibit sponsored by Good Crowd Events .. https://www.i19gallery.com/artdemic
