This is another in my geologic series and is my largest piece to date. It is painted on cradled birch panel and is quite heavy.
After tearing my hair out a couple times, I finally got this one to where I like it. Sometimes abstract work can be SO FRUSTRATING. I had some textured papers on here at first, then ended up ripping them off. This painting is done with acrylic modeling compound, acrylic and metallic paints, copper and aluminum.
I bought the metals at Home Depot, where they are sold as flashing. The copper tacks and square metal brads, I got at a scrapbooking store. I actually enjoy walking through hardware stores and thinking of artistic uses for various things I find there.
