Me and My Shadow

I might do more of these simple paintings using the beautiful papers that are available.  Yes, that's right, the background pattern is collaged onto the wood substrate, sealed and then the painting added.  I prefer not to think of it as cheating as much as being clever.  I think it just adds a bit of complexity to an otherwise simple image.

Beautiful! I love the background paper idea. A friend and I were in an art supply store last week and while looking at all the beautiful papers we were trying to justify purchasing some . . . I think I may go back soon! Thanks for the inspiration.
