This painting combines oil, acrylic, thin strips of balsa wood, dry media, and collage. The hidden addition of collage elements adds a level a domesticity, with each image finding its home in the abstract landscape.
The dark blue in this piece is a unique monoprint. On top of which I added gold spray paint, and watercolor to add a softer texture and some additional color.
