This gets pretty busy but I have never been a minimalist.
Above I laid out 5 canvas within which I will find a figure by painting in an abstract manner until I see a one. I got one out of five the first round (these canvases started as white). One has to adjust one's mind to paint the negative shapes to create the positive.
You can see how I have started to collage the negative space. The papers on the top half are the ones I created with the stamp on black. I have begun to glaze over them with copper. I'm loving this process!!!
