Seasonal Pass of Color
Batik | 19" x 33" | $1400
Feeling the strong seasonal pass of colors, batik was the media of choice for expression of vibrant colors representing the continuum between autumn and spring. Minimal pencil strokes introduced the tree trunk and the remainder of the image was left to the spontaneity of cyclic layers of transparent acrylic paint and hot wax on canvas. After completion of waxing, the canvas was crinkled allowing dye to enter fractures.Final ironing of the wax from the canvas allowed a reveal of colors and shapes once concealed behind wax. The image is always a surprise
Mixed media and splash copper | 16” x 24” | $895
Gnarled trees experience a tedious continuum of life and in final days expose a life scribed by elements and time. In this image acrylic paints and modeling medium were used to create a gentle curved flow that encapsulates rugged growth and angular twists. Splash copper specimens crown the top of this living legend with an extension of growth through the image boundary.
