One thing leads to another

I've been "drawing" with paint on lengths of white voile ($2.50 a yard, on sale at Joann's Fabrics!) and rolling over the marks with a brayer, which flattens them out and reprints them.



Not sure exactly how the cloth will end up being collaged, but I had luck in a past painting cutting them in long strips and gluing them to a white canvas, so maybe I'll try something like that again:

Catherine:
I really like your paintings on the voile. I wonder if instead of gluing them to canvas or other opaque material, you might think about using a translucent material that would allow light to show through...

Just a thought...

So glad you like the paintings, Pam, thank you. That's a cool idea about the translucency ... food for thought!
