This is a small wood panel, 12×12, I think. It was a quiet Saturday afternoon when I finished it, and slightly overcast so the studio was just a bit cool. I started with a thick layer of gesso, then a layer of the darkest blue, Prussian blue, which seems to find it’s way into most of my art. Only a large pallet knife was used with the the heavy body acrylic paints. I painted the sides that warm gold color which gives it a good contrast, I think.
