Private collection of  Dr. Britt Anderson PHD

This painting by Artist Sam Roloff is one of his earliest examples of his “Back-Story Underpainting” method where the artist paints with more expression and color at first. Then much like a “Time Capsule” each layer is painted over hidding nearly all the original work, look closely and you will still see hints of the past. He likens this method to an Archeologist digging through the layers of ground.
