This drawing is made with an assortment of materials that include acrylic paint, oil stick, coffee grounds, matte medium, and spray paint. I am striving to create layers. Some of the marks are intentional and the others are random. I am reminded of amateur food signs at an annual carnival at a local church. It also reminds me of rainbow printed wrestling posters in Richmond, Virginia in the late 1970’s. I wish I had removed the expired posters from the telephone poles.
Two Spirits, Monarch Butterfly is the title of this wall panel. The armature is two discarded plastic corrugated political signs from my wife’s recent campaign. Layers of fabric cover the rectangles. I broke a number of needles sewing. I am excited about the rich surfaces.
