Sraffito, (Italian: “scratched”), in the visual arts, a technique used in painting, pottery, and glass, which consists of putting down a preliminary surface, covering it with another, and then scratching the superficial layer in such a way that the pattern or shape that emerges is of the lower colour.

This actually isn’t one of my cards. This is a card that Dave did back when we lived in California. I’ve always looked at this card and seen Wassily Kandinsky’s “Color Study:Squares with Concentric Circles”. You can find some of the images here.

The funny thing is at this point dave was probably 6 years old, and had likely never seen any of Kandinsky’s work. It wasn’t until we lived in Kansas that our parents, especially our mother, started teaching us about art.
