I scissored Quick & Quixotic into 10 pieces in October, and this morning the second of two narrow cut-ups pushes itself into my field of vision, as does a bunch of rectilinear scraps that had become paper 'tiles' in the service of an entirely different studio undertaking.
I decide to run with what's calling out to me.
I puzzle over how to bring a skinny, muted, kinda blah strip of unstretched painted canvas together with slick black & white tiles from a printed postcard that had featured strong graphic design.

I fiddle with glazing medium and a catalyst tool to add texture to the canvas. I add color with a matte knife.

working title: q&q cut-up #5
I set everything on a tray and opt to let the gathered elements percolate overnight.
