If you know me, you know that I have a love for Egypt. I have a love for ancient history and Egypt is, by far, the epitome of all things ancient. As with most of my paintings, they begin with a base, layers and layers of vintage papers. These papers not only add massive texture to the piece, but implant ‘history’, to an otherwise new work of art.
I am a frequent shopper of antique stores and on one of my outings, I came across a massive, vintage book on Egypt. To most, this book would be an awesome display piece on their coffee table but to me…uh, I like to re-purpose things, so I ripped out some pages and embedded them into my new painting.
