"Evening Lace" (33" X 66")
As I've noted in my bio, I don't use brushes...I paint in a pollack manner on the flat and use torn shapes of light weight cardboard and actual plant materials (leaves, branch, stem, flowers) to paint with... Much like painting the forest with the forest... or painting the garden with the garden... This work was my first venture into using Queen Anne's Lace... I thought at first it was too delicate... but after a few trial runs, I was able to use its elements more readily... It had been a hot dry summer and the QAL was out in force and in bloom everywhere... This work was the result of many, many hours of work and rework time due to its complexity...
