More in the Touchstone series

Encouraged by the reception for the first 15 in my Touchstone series, I have made four more.

There is something addictive about making these little 10 x 10's, mounted on birch cradleboard. The varying density of the white fog background gives a little mystery to the compositions, and the various shapes, some collaged, some painted, relate to each other with a precarious balance.

Stability/instability, bright/dull, solid/ephemeral/patterned, heavy/light, distinct/indefinite: all come into play in these pieces.
