smoking books

I like this one a lot!

Does it have a title?

No it was a study for a large painting i did with this huge pile of books.
Sort of a book junkyard. It was called dog knowledge.

I have a slide of it but the slide came out so bad that I can't use it.
I will take more pics and post them.

i enjoy this also. the texture interests me.. what kind of ground/ prepping did you use?

i like the books, and the elusive narrative quality they evoke.

the ground is traditional gesso, whitingand rabbit skin glue.
then I tone the panel with gray or ochre, umber.
