"Jewel" is a multi-media painting on canvas incorporating oil and acrylic paint with collaged pieces of canvas, paper and canvas on foam core. It is a continuation in the series of paintings I started in 2012 that integrate large stone shapes and tightly-woven pebble shapes that move and entwine throughout the piece. I work directly on the wall rather than stretched canvas. I prefer a hard surface so that I can move around different elements like paper, canvas, metal and plastic pieces I am going to collage onto the canvas - like doing a puzzle except starting from scratch. I also turn the canvas as part of my process which creates balance and enables you, the viewer, to hang the piece anyway you like, either vertically or horizontally. I present the work here the way in which I think it looks best but ultimately orientation is up to the owner. My work on canvas is stretched and ready to hang on homemade 2 1/2" pine stretcher bars.
