Box of Dreams:
Hank and the Bengal Tiger
Dreamed 2009/2/27 by Jenny Badger Sultan
Another animal encounter.
My husband Hank and I are at a party. He's sitting outside.
I go out and find him facing a tiger!
I am alarmed--is this dangerous? I worry "Should I inform someone?" as I often do.
But Hank's a Leo.
They're both big cats. They'll get along.
ON THE TECHNIQUE
Jenny achieves the strange textures seen here by using an old Surrealist technique called decalcomania. You see it in the paintings of Max Ernst.
You apply paint to one surface, slap it down on another, and peel them apart, leaving complex maze-like textures.
