"Lost - yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes.
No reward is offered, for they are gone forever."
-- Horace Mann
Today I am caring for a dying loved one. Accepting that dying is as much a part of nature as living does not come so easily.
The colors & composition of this piece show influences from Gustav Klimt, who is more well known for his portraits but he created wonderful landscapes as well. It is created on a professionally handcrafted birch wood panel.
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, 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.
All 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.
