When I started painting my own fabrics, I had no idea what I might be creating. I have used acrylics before to paint landscapes on regular canvas but never on plain muslin, for example. It was fun experimenting with colors, combining them and creating unusual tones. Sometimes I just painted the whole surface the same, sometimes I would create lines and angles. Not only are the colors here unusual but also the design was different. What could I do with this one, I asked myself? Well, I could emphasize the heavy strokes and the corners of the design. So, I added texture using white and beige heavy mattings used to make rag rugs in Scandinavia. Very old materials used in an abstract composition. It came out pretty good, don’t you think?
