Artist/Illustrator/Writer/Reader ~ Lover of Whimsy

A few weeks ago I saw a painting whose support seemed to be made of woven paper. The painting, which was abstract, was painted on this woven surface. I could not get close enough to see if it was woven paper or canvas strips or what. But it has intrigued me ever since.
In the fall I need to create a painting for a juried show and I always like to do something different, bold, unexpected, you know - eye catching. So - ever since I saw the woven painting, I have been thinking about this. I love all things woven, this little spark of an idea is just sitting quietly waiting to bloom!
So - while I was in the hospital, with nothing else to do at 4:30 am I got out my moleskin sketchbook and my ball point pens and drew a weaving. Any little dashes or unseemly pen marks were made when I dozed off, I just tried to incorporate them!
