This oil painting on deep, cradled birch wood has the image continued around the sides and is protected with archival uv-filtering varnish.
I love color and the physicality of the paint, whether it's thick or fluid. It's always colors that move me and there is an adventure of discovery, of seeing how they look on the painting surface and I work to place them so an energetic balance is achieved in combination with the deliciousness of the pigments.
SUBSTRATE AND MEDIUM
The combination of oil paints with cold wax has a long tradition, and in addition to creating some lovely texture, it means I could create this oil painting without toxic turpentine. The sustainable birch wood of the substrate is manufactured locally, so it too is environmentally responsible.
READY TO HANG AND DISPLAY
This painting is ready to hang as is, or it can be framed. It is continued on the sides and since it is painted on deep wood panel there are several display options, including free-standing.
