A brief interlude...
Original Acrylic, 36x24" on Archival Gessobord with 2" birch sides,
Textures. Today I have posted a painting where I used tissue paper and molding paste to create actual textures that rise off the surface of the painting. It was a blast to play with the molding paste...I used my fingers to create the texture of the tree trunk. It took me back to finger painting as a kid. It was surprisingly soothing and fun. The sky beneath the branches is tissue paper scrunched and applied with polymer medium. The texturing was done pre-painting. Trees have always intrigued me. They are as demonstrative as hands. For me they are especially vocal when framed by sky. There is a lone tree at the top of the hill in my town and every time I drive up that hill the sky is different. That is a bonus!
