Painted to fool the eye into believing the painted canvas background is actually plywood supporting my "painting" and reference material. The references give the appearance of being on light weight paper which is curling up at the corners and supported on top by push pins and scotch tape. One of the references is an original graphite drawing, directly on the stretched canvas. These reference works are combined into one "painting," which has added dimension, standing out from the "plywood" like a stretched canvas would, by usage of a drop shadow. The painted "canvas" is supported by "wood strips" complete with attaching "screws." My signature is on what appears to be a piece of masking tape on the plywood. The canvas edges are painted like the edge of plywood.
