Artist's Description

This work was created on a one inch thick wooden panel. The composition was drawn out, some areas were primed, and some negative spaces were left for removal. I used an electric hand saw to cut the spaces of the image out, after drilling pilot wholes in these areas. Then I used a variety of hand held carving blades to add line work within the roses, leaves, and stems. The facade was then sanded and shapes were cleaned up and smoothed out. Then I painted in various layers with acrylics. I used some gold acrylic paint to accent selective shapes, and leaves. There was a very satisfying feeling while working in the wood, leaving some areas (and the boarder) to show the true nature of the grain. The overall piece was finished with a lacquer, which added a nice reflective sheen. The work was photographed at a slight skew to reveal the actual thickness of the wood and the depth of the shapes. The dimensions of the work are 24in. X 18in. It was created in 2007.
