      Here we have my fertile imagination at work. After cutting an X & O out of styrofoam,  I used wet Masa paper over the new mold to form my X & O's which were painted gold then mounted on a checkered paper bag that I had collected. I am attracted to interesting papers.

   Very rarely do I try to go for symbolism, with me it is just an image that I wanted to paint or do into a mixed media painting. This time I was using the checker background to represent the games that people enjoy playing either literally or psychologically. You know the old passive aggressive or approach avoidance thing. 
These are professionally framed in three shadow box frames so that they may be hung in a triptych grouping. I think they are unique but the world does not seem to agree with me.

                                             Come on world,get with the program!
