Paintings 2008 – recycled materials

The recycling them recurs frequently in my work.  For this series I used a mouldy old rag which I rescued from the garden and pressed into the first layer of paint to create texture .   I worked in layers of acrylic to build up the seven paintings in this series, adding other media as I felt they were needed.  They started as abstracts and as I worked on them, landscapes appeared which were based on views that are familiar to me.
