There must always be a beginning, 24 x 48 inches, acrylics-masonite.

Anders is returning to masonite in 2014. The past two years his mediums of choice have been acrylics-canvas and acrylics-watercolor paper. For over thirty years masonite has been the primary surface for an Anders painting. Now, it will join canvas and watercolor paper as images are transferred from one surface to another.

Pressure, by nature, leaves it marks where pressure is applied

The new masonite work will be all about surface and application of paint, and of course, the removal of paint. Lines will be additive and subtractive. Meaning and texture will accumulate with levels and layers.

This is not an accident, yet it is unexpected and expected.

The masonite paintings start with two coats of an ochre tinted bonding primer. Each coat is brushed in a different direction for smoothness. Then a base color, in this case a red, is applied. The process has begun. The joy is the journey.
