Featured painting "Ship" 30 x 40 mixed media painting on recycled canvas
This piece was inspired by a painting that hung in my childhood living room that my grandmother had created. I spent hours staring at it and memorizing the Impressionist style ocean and ship. This is my rendition of that work using cloth to create the textured sky and ocean with colored with oil paint, while the ship itself is carved out of wood and painted to show the boards that make up the hull. My wonderful granddaughter wanted me to add a mermaid so I carved her into the figure head. This piece will hand in the Eagle Library for the month of July 2017.
Each of the reproductions is a photo of the painting that I personally use a glue process to add the raised texture back into the photo.
