First Snow - Imagined Woods Series, 11.25 x 15, Original Watercolor, ready to hang on an Eco-friendly mount
The cool snowy frost can be felt when you look at this painting. The snowfall is early and some green plants are still poking up through the snow. Promise of more cold to come. Time for bundling up and staying cozy is just around the corner.
Imagined Woods Series - during quarantine, I became obsessed with what I am calling the Imagined Woods series. Some were dark and foreboding, some were light and hopeful, others feel in between. I explored sizes, shapes, processes and color schemes. Most have multiple layers, with the distant trees hinted at with pale color that were applied wet into wet. Since we were quarantined in the winter and spring the branches are bare but waiting for new life. Even the dark and mysterious ones hint at a distant light.
This painting is mounted on a double layer of corrugated plastic (mostly likely a reclaimed election yard sign). The edges are covered with white tape for a clean finish. The plastic is cut slightly smaller than the painting, so that it is not visible from the front. It is wired and ready to hang.
The result is a clean contemporary look that is extremely light weight. It can hang many places a traditional piece cannot, or it is sturdy enough to sit on a shelf. The surface is treated to protect the painting. You can hang it as it is, or you may wish to have it framed; in which case, you do not need glass.
