Artist uses texture, light to make blank canvas come alive

An Oriental patterned carpet lies underneath the Battle of the Little Bighorn painting in progress in William Ahrendt’s studio, but not a speck of paint has fallen on it. Ahrendt has placed a smaller, much less expensive rug directly under the canvas to catch wayward paint drops, but no visible paint has fallen on that rug either.
