'Ashland in Autumn' . 25" x 36" . Acrylic and Inks on two panels, mounted within custom frame . 2016
Inspired from a walk on a crisp Autumn day in Lithia park in Ashland Oregon, one of which will forever be etched in my mind (and on film) - one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The reflections of the Japanese gardens, or what I perceived as Japanese gardens, was breathtaking. These are my memories, in abstract.
Numerous acrylic washes and layered glazes created the luminous effects of the glowing gardens. Again, a unique, one of a kind piece that could never be duplicated, completely custom including the frame.
This piece is comprised of two panels, (1/2" deep, 18.5 x 28.5), that I've mounted (raised significantly for effect) within a custom frame (photos included). Of course the artwork can be removed and mounted as a buyer may wish but I find the effect dramatic and showcases the art well. I've added a distinctive green inner wooden accent liner within the frame.
This is a striking piece.
Many layers within this work - many. One of my favorite pieces - has an Asian flair to it. Peaceful gardens appeared in the background.
