One of my favorite things to do is to make things on a 2-dimensional piece of paper look like they are 3-dimensional; creating a bit of an optical illusion. This piece started out as a ‘happening’ without any plan or forethought…just playing around to see what would happen. I put pieces of masking tape on paper and then sprayed with watercolor paints. When I removed the tape, I used color pencils to convert each white space area into some form of 3-dimensional object.
Two of my engineering-type brothers picked this one out from all my paintings as their favorite. This is what happens when the left brain and the right brain work together…great fun!
