more from 2009
This painting started life as a mono print. I reworked the whole thing by painting with acrylics on top of it. some of the gray areas are made with a micaceous paint that Golden produces which imparts a fine, gritty texture and a slightly metallic sheen. I also experimented with some iridescent medium, which prompted a friend to ask, "so what's with the shiny stuff ?" Okay, maybe he didn't use the word "stuff". I'm not really one for glitzy and slick, but I think it is good, at least in art-making, to venture into territories that feel a little out of character once in a while.
This piece measures 12x14 and is as yet, untitled.
