The original is 30 × 36 inches on 1.5 inch stretchers. It was created using a combination of painting and pouring techniques. I’ve been experimenting with layering thick coats of transparent media, where color and form are brushed or knifed into the wet media. When this is done, the media does not completely dissolve the paint. Depending on the media used, the paint streaks are softened around the edges, or pulled apart into translucent diaphanous sheets and ribbons. By bringing the paint out of the wet media layer onto the canvas, smooth transitions between the techniques and their “looks” can be created, enhancing the effect of interleaved transparent and translucent forms. Extruded transparent heavy and soft gel with small amounts of added color provide structure and surface relief. Again, by drawing and smearing some of the heavy 3-D details into the painted areas and liquid-streaked areas smooth transitions and a complex interleaving is created. While the painting doesn’t look exactly like “trees” it captures the light and movement that I most admire about the season.
