Description: Sitting behind the paint on paintings are other things of beauty. From the canvas itself, made some all sorts of wonderful materials, to the frames made in wood with their own backstory of how they become to be, to the things behind the entire painting, like the wall, people, circuitry. Sometimes it is good to examine not only what you are looking at, but, what is around/behind it. The painting was built upon another painting, which was built upon the canvas, the frame and hangs upon a shelf which holds surprises of its own. By scraping away parts of the top painting, ripping holes in the canvas, more wonders can be found.
