Weather-beaten woodwork. Rusted ironworks. Crumbling plaster. This is the imagery that fascinates me. Distressed architecture tells so many stories... Acrylics let me paint the layer upon layer needed to 'coax out' the relentless, intractable dynamic of aging." --Misty Martin (p 24) "As I continued adding texture and paint, the interesting ridges and shapes started to symbolize the layers of life--sometimes smooth, sometimes rough. Each successive layer led me closer to my 'aha' moment." --Terri Duncan (p 123)
