This piece is an outgrowth of what I learned from doing the "Sun Series" in December. I wanted to make a larger piece that used the same techniques of layering and sanding, using plaster and shellac along with my other mixed media materials. I quit counting the number of layers once I realized how often I was adding layers of gesso, shellac, and plaster that I just ended up sanding away. Part of what I like about working like this is the unexpected things that happen along the way. It is what I call the "soul" or the "history" of the work. There is so much buried in this piece that no one can see but that affects the final outcome. It resonates with a depth that I can only refer to as an artwork's soul.
