Something that is finished and measuring in at 5 x 6in this painting is oil, varnish and collaged card on canvas. Think it was a model for a bigger painting if I was lucky to get a big space to make it happen. If I remember correctly, the cardboard used here which i went on to paint on was packaging from China and had a different feel to the usual stuff and felt quite exotic, this is odd considering cardboard is quite a mundane and common product.
I remember painting gloss and oil marks on piles of the stuff which i later cut up and vowed to use in paintings. I did with this painting. New discoveries can be old discoveries rediscovered.
Painting found stored in an old box, from about 1999.
