I hate to throw away paper. With my recently-developed technique of folding, spindling and mutilating paper (a behavior I had to learn since this conduct was largely prohibited in the 1970s). I am trotting out my marred paper for this treatment.
It is working out quite well. I painted the abstract below on previously-folded paper I hadn’t gotten around to discarding. I folded it more and created different angles and finally crumpled it into a ball. Paper never gets quite flattened out, once it is crumpled, which is the interesting part about painting on it.
I like this piece. I can envision a less complicated version of today’s abstract serving as a background, or substrate for work of Paul Klee, one of the Masters of the Bauhaus.
