A while ago I started painting shard fragments and torn paper on small wood panels. It was interesting but what was even more interesting was wrapping the paint over the edges. It seemed like the painting wanted to be a sculpture and I liked the way this idea tickled my brain.
A 3-dimensional painting. Hmmm…
Is it a painted sculpture or a sculptural painting? And since I’m into 3-D illusion, it seems like a natural direction to go in.
Sometimes it’s more fun to play. Painting can be so serious. I need to take a break from it now and again. Not that I paint continuously or anything like that. But I mean the subject matter. What to paint and why?
Recently I became distracted with barn quilts, with their visual geometry and pattern. I painted some on the small wood panels and liked that they could be put together.
