Something about this that captures me...it's layered maybe that's it.????

Regina Valluzzi replied:

Hiya, I think that the natural texture of the primed surface gets punched up a bit in the mini pieces. They're tiny and the image you see is either life size or even magnified on the scanner. Sort of like looking at a painting with a magnifier - and you see the whole thing thru the lens. So all of the textures and tiny peculiarities of pigment become much more of a focus, and there are more "layers" than the 3 or 4 layers of human painting. It's oil on clay with particulates in there for tooth.

Regina Valluzzi replied:

Thanks for popping in Charlie, and for commenting. Do you gesso your own surfaces? I've started trying out this absorbent gesso - absorbent surfaces seem to give lichen-like patterns. I noticed that the (very pricey) gesso looks, feels, and smells exactly like quick-dry paintable spackle from the hardware store. might be worth an experiment or two.

There is more than meets the eye here.!!!..........................allen

Regina Valluzzi replied:

hi Allen, Thanks for popping in. I like to work with the patterns created by different paint mixtures on different surfaces, but those details can be lost in larger paintings. These little bitty ones force an equal balance between painted features and the patterns that just emerge from the properties of paint. It's sort of an interesting place to play around in, and I think the little paintings sometimes come out unexpectedly rich.
