Postcard 02/23/10

I experimented today with a concept I am thinking of using for a larger piece.  I took a black and white photo of a face, glued it down and sanded it.  I applied white gesso over the top and rubbed some of it off so the image was still visible but shadowy.  I wrapped the postcard with darning thread across the image.  I finished by lightly painting in some of the spaces with black paint.  Though not developed fully, I like the concept and am looking forward to working this technique on a larger scale.
