Three's A Crowd
This 12x12” oil and cold wax painting represents my new approach to still life. It is a new compositional approach that has to do with the way the objects are arranged on the canvas. Most still life art places the objects in the middle. I was influence by the way movies and television cut things off at the edge. It creates a feeling that there is something beyond what you see and that the image is a fleeting moment.
The oil paint is mixed with a wax medium. It makes the paint thicker and shows all the marks used to make the art. It dries to a non shiny rich color. After it’s dry the surface is dry and hard and does not feel waxy. The paint is applied with a palette knife which is a tool similar to a small spatula.
I’m really excited by this new approach both with the composition and adding wax to the paint. I love the thickness of the paint!
This painting comes in a sturdy cardboard box. It is ready for hanging right away. You have two weeks to live with it. If you don’t like it you can return it for a full refund.
