Palimpsest
acrylic on canvas
12 x 12
2015

Ok, I know a palimpsest is what is left when the writing is scraped off a page, but the partially readable foreign writing stenciled in the background reminded me of writing that has been lost somehow. It has been obliterated by a slash of white and an energetic scrape of a tool. Is it a Palimpsest or am I just following the crowd?
