and now the final one of these, palimpsest

I know that this has been going down a cul de sac, but its over, and I am pleased with the results:  an area that I probably shan't visit again.

PALIMPSEST from the Woodrat series

Palimpsest: A manuscript or piece of writing material on which the original writing has been effaced to make room for later writing: something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form.  On the left, 'Woodrat Submerged', on the right 'The Birth of Woodrat'
105cms x 87cms mixed media and resin.

I overlaid shapes and the architectural colours of the Woodrat, effacing, obscuring the painting underneath.  They now seem to be saying the right things about the machine
