  1. Glue traces? I recently got aware of their patterns, and now I see them in so many places. A trained psychiatrist might write character studies based on their shapes.

    1. I think they correspond well with the remnants/outlines of the overpainted Kleister below (I use Kleister because dictionary says Kleister=glue – that doesn’t sound right).

  2. Just read this, reminded me of this post:

    “Willem de Kooning gives a pastel to Robert Rauschenberg, who takes it home and promptly erases it. Next he signs his name to the erasure. Then he sells it.”
