Home And Garden
18" x 30"
This is one of the largest pieces I've done and it took lots of time, patience and arm strength. A massive amount of heat fusing needs to be done layer after layer on a piece this size and so over the past few weeks I've fused and tweaked my way to this finished painting. I have a fusing iron that probably would have done the job much more quickly but it would have yielded a much smoother surface and that just wouldn't do. I love to see the texture and bubbles and depth of the wax and so I just took my time and worked on this a bit each day in between other smaller pieces. The closer I got to finishing the faster I wanted to work but there truly are physical limitations to working this big. Home And Garden is a reflection on summer, place, time and change and I really like the overall feel of the work and the idea that it is a visual story. Thanks for reading...
