Reflection XXII is an extension of my last small painting in the series, Reflection XX. Working on Reflection XX, I realized the handmade paper could be more versatile than I had been allowing. I cut the handmade paper into strips rather than using a full piece of the paper. I took this idea a step further in Reflection XXII by tearing the handmade paper rather than cutting it. I also applied a layer of paint on top of the paper changing the color slightly.
