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.
