A mixed media piece – magazine image, tissue overlay, permanent ink. An image of ancient trees on the savannah, foreground and frame the setting sun.
The photo does not do this piece justice, I feel. I’m really pleased with how the inking of the darker parts turned out, and used pointillist technique for the shading which is quite striking.
I’m trying to get away from overworking my paintings – noticed many other pieces I admire are quite simple, and so I’m going to leave this the way it is and call it finished.
Featured image photo I took of a mosaic in the rear of a restaurant in South Minneapolis.
