Jigsaw, 9050, abstract, mixed media triptych
I am SO excited about this triptych. It is just so cool. Each piece is cradled MDF board, 12x12inches and about 1.5 inches deep. I used several metallic elements including stainless steel, silver art paper, metallic acrylic paints, a variety of brads, tacks, nails and paper fasteners. Each piece has about 50 nails, tacks, etc. and many of them had to have a hole drilled in the board before I could attach them.
But the REALLY COOL thing about this painting is that each piece was finished with a layer of epoxy resin. I have never done that before. The resin hardens to a thick crystal clear layer that seals all the pieces and protects the shine of the metals.
Honestly, I was scared to death to pour the resin on top of my completed paintings because they were a LOT of work. If the resin didn't perform properly, I would have a mess and a waste of many hours of work. It turned out perfect.
The photos cannot capture the shine and sparkle of these pieces. I will have them at the Downtown Denver Arts Festival this weekend. For purchase information, please see my website SOLD.
