My parents saved all of my childhood drawings from ages four through twelve. One day, many years later, I was looking at the drawings and I realized that the images had no backgrounds. I was looking at a drawing of Jesus on the Cross, with a starry night and two stabbers. I realized that if I enlarged and painted my kid drawings on raw canvas (as a gessoed, oil-painted spot image) I could, then, flood the background and do a larger, watery version of the same image. The watery version would sink in while the painted image sat on top of the canvas. I would get a 3-D effect from the combination. The double image also implies a dual reality, one internal and one external.
