METAL LINKS, 9071, mixed media abstract

It felt so good to be able to work in my studio today. I have several paintings underway. I need to work on some little mixed media abstracts to have examples for my upcoming METALS AND MIXED MEDIA workshop in October.
This little painting (7x7 inches) has Venetian plaster texturizing the panel. Then I used copper and burlap strands for the design. It's very understated with the muted earth tones - looks good in the black wood frame.

Dear Carol,

Your "Metal Links, 9071" is a powerful piece... very strong.

The copper is striking in the midst of the earth tone colors. Very nice!

Carol, this little piece is one of my favorites. It reminds me of the many fences I drove past this weekend in CO., maybe a little lonely but with stories to tell.
