I had to get away from the postal book and paint something. I have been re-visiting some books and articles on texture projects, and I think this two-page spread probably has ideas from several places. I know it started with gesso on the pages, with scribbling into the gesso before it dried. Next came layers of paint, some circles, number stencils, more scribbling, and collage. The postage stamp has a quote by Abraham Lincoln, and that's the quote I used on the page. It was done quickly and I'm not that happy with my lettering, but this is a journal for play. Emphasis on play, not perfection.
