These are all experiments with a more visceral, loose approach to painting...I'm trying to break out of the box I've been working in for the last few months.

These are great. I understand the reasons for using inexpensive/recycled supports. With foam core, do you have concern for the life of your work?

Hadn't really considered that, but it's polystyrene...so I'd imagine that it's not going anywhere fast. Foam core is also often used for framing/matting of art and photographs. I don't know if what I have is archival though. I guess time will tell.

Wonderful.

I know the art supply store near me has a wide selection of foam core, with some being acid free, and I want to say there might even be some labeled "archival" but it's been months since I've even been to that section of the store, so I could be wrong.
