Justice - a mixed media painting

Justice
Cyndi Lavin, 2017
A few weeks ago, I got to hear a recording of Martin Luther King's wonderful speech that is commonly known as the "I have a dream" speech.  It always stirs me.  Although I didn't have this in mind specifically when I painted the background, I soon decided to add the lettering for the portion of the speech that King paraphrased from Amos 5:24:
No, no, we are not satisfied and will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.

The technique for painting this is basically the same as Firefly's Dance from a few weeks ago.  The major difference is that I first adhered a layer of wrinkled tissue paper to my substrate before painting.
