Defining the Line
A photoblog of today's session. A continuation of the "surface zero" project. Taking down a series of encaustic paintings to the core-- recharging them after 5 years of standing in storage.
Exploring painting by going back into old work... a new way of looking at them. Using a different method for joining color, grid and surface.
