Photo 5 – FIRST back-lit white plastic painted panel premiered in the open studio in July of 2015. Open studio visitors saw it first and their reaction and the success of the experiment catapulted me to plan an entire installation around this concept; studio paintings on canvas, white plastic and transparent acetate. – "the END is the beginning" – photo by Lucy Galpin.
