Experimental “Fossils” on 300lb. Rough Paper

I went to Meininger’s “Garage Sale” a few weeks ago and (with much restraint) walked out with less than 10 items… one of which was a pack of 300lb. rough watercolor paper.  After having used very smooth, hotpress watercolor papers for several years, and after my fun experimenting on black paper, I thought this would be a good paper for shaking things up some more.

So, I started with some small “fossils” and was somewhat pleased with this result.  More are in progress!

    I think it’s really pretty. Looks like the abstract art you can buy on like allposters.com

    The rough paper adds another dimension of texture. Looks a bit like animal skin. If I stretch my imagination without being gross… mummied skin is sorta fossilized. Like Native American dyed skins for shoes and clothing.

    It’s been a while since I’ve visited. I hope all is well and your art is selling. (smile)

    Hi David,
    good to see your new fossils! (that 300 lb watercolor paper serves lots of purpose. I did SW earrings using it many moons ago.
    I enjoy your site & really felt for your “bummer” galley experience. Your talent will sustain you!
