Layers and layers and the some more. Like life, we build up intensity (or release for that matter), through shapes, colors and time. This piece looked quite different a month ago and then I reworked it. Something was amiss... New meanings occur when we work and continue on to make a piece come to life with greater awareness. I love when the fourth or fifth layer is placed, and then, through a few strokes of my wedge, the first, possibly even the second layer is ever so briefly revealed. The piece has so much more to say. Language is not only based on words; actions come into play too.
