This piece is a little different for me...I do love experimenting. The mostly horizontal texture here is a modeling paste in straight choppy lines accented by cheese cloth. There is some other texture, very faint, as it was added toward the end of the painting. I just love the mottled gray background and the bold black and gold drippy bits. Added to my favourite red/orange/yellow combo, who can resist this almost cruciform shape. Thanks for looking.
