32" x 12" multimedia painting composed of acrylic and oil spray paint with glitter on wood
With Arctic Caterpillar, I tried a new technique that was an amazing success. I had thinned the acrylic paint out with water and added dry plaster. After brushing it onto the board, I set it outside on a winter night. The paint froze, then dried, solidifying the ice crystals into the paint. This painting is the sister piece to A.E.I.O.U. As I was pouring the green in the iris of the latter, I splattered it onto this piece, standing upright next to it.
