Name Of The Game
The working title is 'tokens' but I'm accepting bids on a better one, something with board game connotations so it will fit in a January gallery theme show. I'm tickled with how this one turned out because it hung on the top (unpaintable) pegs for a couple of months in various stages of confusion. I'd put the circles in with tar gel and there was no getting away from them... they had to be dealt with or scrap the canvas... and I don't scrap canvas. The black surface is very deep and layered looking like a chalkboard in a very old and abused condition... it makes the painting, IMHO. I can't pass it without running my hands over the surface... a sure sign of favoritism.
