Here are two painted canvases ready to go through the cut-up and reassemble process -- recently learned in a Katie Masopust class.
These didn't take too long to complete...maybe two hours overall that includes alternating periods of painting and drying them.
In looking at these more critically, they really need more gradation of the background color. That is part of what makes Katie's technique work, and these don't have that yet. Will I paint over them? I probably should.
