Mixed media on panel
15" X 19 1/2" (framed)

Many of my paintings begin by loosely, and serendipitously, painting over a previous painting and then seeing what will happen.   I often leave pentimenti (traces of previous images) that the prior painting accumulated.   This one is such a painting.   I manipulate planes by painting diagonal lines---often a shorthand for agricultural fields or other indications of human presence.    I use curved lines (arabesques) to further the movement and add a musical touch.
