Sometimes one has to take a risk with color! Incorporating opposites like purple and yellow brought this piece to life for me.
As always, I find peace in the forest's colors.
All works from the SPLINTERED WISDOM series are created on paper mounted wood panels artfully painted & splashed with pure watercolors. The rich texture of the trees are created with collaged bits of images of bark & litter I pick up off scenic highways, as a gentle reminder that if we do not stop trashing the planet, trees will not grow from our garbage in the future. The overall result is an aesthetically alluring landscape with a hidden message about protecting our forests.
Pieces from this series are finished with two coats of archival satin varnish, creating a contemporary but natural look. The edges are finished with varnish as well, but left natural and often display drips of paint from the process. No framing required.
This is a Diptych. Each panel is 18" X 18".
