Here is the latest version of my current digital decalcomania painting: Artist’s Proof No.1: The Legacy of Ghost Girl’s Shadow #2. Click on the image to see a larger version and discover more of the almost countless figures and faces.

This image was created using a digital photo of an old discarded oil painting on masonite that had been left on our fence behind a huge quince bush for at least 15 years. Maybe longer. It was recently re-discovered and photographed.

In Photoshop I selected heavily feathered sections of the decalcomania texture and used them to fill a large document in Corel Painter 2016. The rest was just a relaxed journey through the rich surface looking for anything my brain recognized: an eye, a pair of lips, a face, a beard, an elbow, etc. I then would nudge those found fragments as little as possible by covering some of the content around them or re-painting its surface to make it easy for viewers to see what had caught my eye. Always at the cost of destroying other hidden treasures in the process. Great fun, but also just a tad stressful.
