Ready to Hang
I looked at a lot of different trees before deciding on this particular one. It's from a photo I took just outside the Torpedo Factory. I think the fractal quality of the tree branches works really well with the wavy surface. The thin branches highlight the texture and also wrap around the edge of the piece.
The surface is (from bottom to top) a hard Masonite board with a wooden cradled edge, then molding paste to create the texture, then oil paint on top of that. All of the glossiness is created with the oil paint itself. This is part of a whole series I'm doing with molding paste texture, exploring different natural and abstracted patterns.
This a 12" wide by 12" tall oil painting. It comes with a coated wire on the back, ready to hang. It was completed in March 2015.
You can pick up the piece from my Torpedo Factory studio, #227 in Old Town Alexandria, or from my apartment in Arlington near Pentagon City. You can buy the piece through Vango or pay for it by cash, check or credit card in person. I accept Visa & Mastercard, American Express & Discover at my Torpedo Factory Art Center gallery/studio.
