"Compass" is a mixed media painting
9" x 12" framed in a floater frame 11" x 13.5"

Inspired by experimenting with wet watercolor paper and molding it over a wood frame. When it dries it is tight as a drum. I was able to draw onto it making a design using one of my favorite found objects (the arch shape). Also, I was anxious to play with my father's old fountain pen that was recently passed on to me by my brother. The vertical lines drawn up from the bottom of the composition where made with this pen and India ink. As my design progressed I felt moved to add the plastic piece I'd found while out walking my dogs. I like to collect interesting shapes for my stash of found objects; you just never know when they will be the perfect touch. I sewed this object onto my painting with yarn (as shown in the photo viewing the back).
