Mansfield Park in ink, over old Frankenthaler--Manet piece

Acrylic, ink, collage on wood

This is the companion piece to "Then He Gave Me His Guitar." The original was a test case, done in Oakland, California, following Helen Frankenthaler's painting that took after Eduardo Manet's still life of a fish. I had not poured a painting before. (The write-up is on artistinanaframe.blogspot.com 2/3/2012 E.M. And H.F....). These two halves were languishing in a closet. I decided to make the paintings really "mine" and have re-worked them.
