8×7″ acrylic on matboard

This is a fresh scrape of acrylic over an old painting (with a red background), then a block print (using acrylic) over that.

When I did the last Tigerlily painting/print, the block-printing process left some nice stripes on a cat-body-shaped piece of paper I used to protect the body of the cat in the work. Today, I decided to reverse the process, using the outer paper around the cat body shape to mask the rest of the painting and leave the striping block prints in the shape of Tigerlily.

And now I will try to leave Tigerlily behind.
