Third Panel

I'm beginning the third panel in my series of "graffiti" collages. This is a 7 x 13 panel of cardboard. I applied a layer of white gesso and marked a swirl in it while still wet. Then came a wash of acrylic. I then applied two pieces of paper -- the map and a scrap from a photocopy of another collage, and finally a large piece of a beautiful paper napkin. I will add some more scraps and post the next step in the next couple days.
