"Tears of Spring"
Acrylic Mixed-Media on Canvas
I've been experimenting with a different approach to preparing a painting surface that involves gluing mat board I've cut into shapes onto the canvas. I've found I can create a texture layer that can stand alone as a composition and be nearly as interesting as what I paint on it. This is the forth in a series completed. I've had fun mixing layers, abstract and cubist elements, and a variety of subjects. I'll try to get more posted!
