I was told before that the back of a piece should be as perfect as the front.
I never seem to achieve it, and I'm not completely sure that I buy that idea.
In drawing and painting classes there was a certain appreciation for being able to see the artist's search for the chosen mark or stroke to convey the form.
The back of most of my pieces seems to conceal a multitude false starts, errors and patches.A bit of a mess.
Another trail I've left behind.
also I love this
