Usually, deconstruction is a last resort done when I can't get a mixed media piece to come together. It's something I do when I know my actions could ruin the painting - but since the painting wasn't working out, I'm really not ruining anything. Midway through the deconstruction, I thought a new potential painting was starting to show. Actually, some of my most successful paintings have gone through a deconstruction phase.
You will notice several different materials in this piece including foam plate, tyvek, and several weights of paper, including some that I sprayed with Rustoleum Hammered Copper. I love that spray paint and the very cool look it has.
