Untitled 2

This one is from a couple of months ago, one of the multi-layered oil paintings I described in a previous post. I experimented with Cold Wax Medium on this one. It gives a very matte effect. I also had great fun using a thick wooden comb for some of the texture.

I love it! Colors are awesome, and the balance is extraordinary - and I think intuitive.

Behold the artist!

I really love this, Jala. There are so many interesting areas for the eye to settle on. I love the dark combed areas and the touches of gold. I also like the way the canvas is quartered by the background. Very nice!

Thanks, Casey. It means so much coming from you!! You're right, it was an extremely intuitive piece, really no thinking at all...which is the best way, when one can do it. :)

Gwen, thank you very much!
