"Wisp of Red" --This is part of a whole series I'm doing with texture, exploring different abstract patterns. I used hard Masonite board underneath with a wooden cradled edge. There is a consistent underlying texture which is thick and created by using molding paste and a palette knife. The underlying texture reminds me a bit of the surface of the moon. Then on top of the molding paste there is some color layering of the oil paint itself, and also a variation in surface texture. The green surface is more oily/shiny, and the yellow more matte but with a bubbly texture. So the point was to create a sense of contrast in both the color and the texture.
I wanted to keep the colors and patterns basic and simple, so that the underlying texture would have a chance to shine.
This a 12" wide by 16" tall oil painting on wood-cradled Masonite board. It comes with a coated wire on the back, ready to hang. It was completed in August 2012.
Turnaround time is 5 business days from the time I receive payment to the time I send the artwork. It will be carefully shipped in bubble wrap and a cardboard box and will be insured.
If you live in the area and would like to pick up the piece in person, please message me. You can pick up the piece from the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria if I am in a studio there, my Lee Arts Center studio in West Arlington, or from my apartment in Arlington near Pentagon City.
