One of my latest mixed media pieces is this "By The Sea" painting, featuring a public domain image of the Cuttyhunk lighthouse (Cuttyhunk, MA), and a seagull photograph that I took at Colt State Park, RI. There are seven layers of texture medium, paints, graphite, paper, scratchings, sandings, and more paint! The photographs are sealed in a thin, dreamy layer of encaustics. This piece will be going to one of the galleries next week. It is done on an 18x24 gallery canvas.
