Painting Technique

All paintings are acrylic on canvas. The surfaces are highly worked and have a weathered appearance. The process involves an electric sander, gel medium, Ajax, water, rubbing and applying and removing many layers of paint. At the end a coat of gloss, acrylic polyurethane is applied.

End result is a very flat surface that resembles and feels somewhat like a glossy encaustic with considerable apparent depth. All 12 x 12 or 11 x 14 inches.
