Thank you, Plaid Supporters. I went looking for some new ones, but plaid is not a summer thing apparently - fall is for plaid. I DID find though a few interesting prints and also this movie star of a cabbage at a small community market. The pink and blue in the cloth were sort of florescent colors, delicate but pop-strong at the same time. To keep it from being too dotty, which is ok too, but I took a broad piece of cardboard and dragged it across some parts of the painting to obliterate some edges. I like this tool and process -- it kind of binds everything together.
