Unspoken Truth

Unspoken Truth
These two men appeared in a piece I did called Italian Gothic.  This piece took a bit of time to do.  I did a somewhat similar background in a journal last summer for the class that Terry, Brian, and I taught in Coupeville, WA.  I love doing texture rubbings which appear in the background.  Adding tissue paper billard balls which my Florida art friend, Thomas, found really add background interest. I photo-shopped the men to achieve the pixelated appearance.  Finally I put a faux encaustic finish on the piece.
