Mayan Eye

Even looking at this piece 10- years after I made it, I can still recall how difficult it was cutting out those little Mayan figures.

Luckily National Geographic used good paper stock even in the 1980s.

Unfortunately this is the piece that showed me with great clarity that diluted paint makes for a good effect when it runs down canvas but it doesn’t make for a long-lasting painted finish. After hanging in a shop – sometimes in direct sunlight – for a couple of months the paint was horribly faded and the paper had suffered too.

Needless to say I adjusted my paint / water mix after this!
