From Pentimento Series : "Love Letters" : Archival Pigment Prints with Encaustic

"Old paint on canvas, as it ages, sometimes becomes transparent. When that happens it is possible, in some pictures, to see the original lines: a tree will show through a woman's dress, a child makes way for a dog, a large boat is no longer on an open sea. That is called pentimento, because the painter 'repented,' changed (her) mind. Perhaps it would be as well to say that the old conception, replaced by a later choice, is a way of seeing and then seeing again." ~ from Lillian Hellman's "Pentimento: A Book of Portraits" 1973
