Here is another painting I have in a show this month. This is a large piece measuring 36 inches by 36 inches by 2 inches. When I was creating the leaf pattern I was thinking of the beautiful India henna hand painting called Mehandi.
The leaves and swirls are raised and create a great texture. The spoke-wheel shapes are carved into the wax and a white oil paint has been rubbed into the carved circles and lines. Lately I have been working with smaller painting (easier to sell) and it really is fun to play with a larger canvas.
