Sculpted Textural Paintings in Progression
“The Canvas Skin”
Adhesive bond against the board,
the grit, the grain upon it poured.
The layers are built, the texture raised,
to give the surface dimensions played.
A finger slides across the canvas skin,
to measure what could now begin.
Potential image which seeks a form,
concepts waiting to be born.
Here the vision finds its shape,
where the painter makes his way.
A trail to graze calls the eyes,
follow what these hands surmise.
