A Finished Few

I mounted four completed pieces today in my yet unnamed series. The canvas support is studded with rusted square head nails. Some of these nails remained from a barn floor my husband removed, planed and reinstalled in our 1860 barn

Expanding on an idea

In a previous post, I discussed the piece SOMETIMES I GO TO PIECES. I painted a huge amount of canvas strips for that piece, tried to use them on another piece, but it just didn’t make it. I ran across
