In 2020/2021 I submitted a proposal to rework large older paintings in a series of “cover ups”. (Even though the proposal wasn’t chosen I’ve gone forward with the project). The paintings have older imagery or text peeking through. Candy Cake and Ditch And Pretend are both reworks. In Candy Cake you can see the writing below it and blue mostly covers the underlying cadmium yellow deep in Ditch And Pretend.
