I just did this painting this afternoon on a whim. I was playing around with some old map books a cartographer friend gave me this summer. There were a few in there that I didn’t want to cut up because the books were quite old and that sort of thing makes me squeamish, but this was a pretty standard 1970s map atlas; nothing special. I sliced it into ribbons, covered it in Mod Podge and gesso, and did a splatter on top. Not exactly my deepest work, but it was something fun to make on a gloomy afternoon.

If you would like to have it, let me know. It’s 8×10 and I’m selling it for $40.
