Hand carved white pine that was painted with acrylic. The process starts with drawing on the wood. After the image is on the surface, the wood is hand carved with a chisel and a mallet. The carving gives depth and texture to the wood. Once the carving is completed, the piece is covered in layers of gesso and then the painting begins. After the paining is done the piece is painted with layers of gloss medium. The result is a one of a kind painted wood piece that sparkles with light and color.
