Into the Desert, March 2021
Acrylic on Canvas
36 x 24 x 2 in
This piece is called "Into the Desert" because that's where it went; with a long garden hose and a powerful spray nozzle. I wasn't happy with this piece and decided to take my frustration out on it by power washing off layers of paint. Gritty texture and interesting shapes became visible and the new start for this painting. This ended up being a great way to relieve stress and expose elements of the painting I wouldn't have found otherwise.
