Recycling Old Paintings

'Variation #57'     5x7             pastel
Variation #57 is painted on reclaimed Uart paper. Actually #55, 56 and 57 were once paintings that weren't working. I brushed off the pastel and did an alcohol wash to set this base layer which was for the most part a dark gray. I like how cold and icy this one looks.
