The Negativity of Space

"The surface of the Earth itself is an immense
loom upon which the sun weaves the fabric of existence."
Wade Davis

9x12" Clairefontaine paper, gouache

I've been painting up a storm. This started with an exploration of negative space in my Alphabet journal a few months ago, and suddenly I was trying to paint the opposite of stuff. It really is a different way of thinking, like painting what is not there. I used some Photoshop filters to show you what I'm thinking when I paint. Not that Photoshop can read my mind, but you can see the edges that are in the page somewhere.
