This is a mixed media painting. I used acrylic paint, ink, salt, strips of ink on yupo paper, tissue paper and lacquer on this piece to give it a really textured surface. The lacquer makes the surface shiny as well.
It's really hot here in Iowa this summer. This painting is my reaction to that heat - emotionally as well as physically. Summer can be lovely, but the salt on the canvas reminds me of the gritty feel you sometimes get when out in the summer sun.
Thanks so much for looking at my art!
