Spirit

22.5 x 40.5" tempera on primed canvas

I reworked this painting many times, scraping off one layer after another of tempera, and then throwing more paint. In the buildup of layers, subtle shapes & hints of color appeared, and there was depth & movement in the paint, as if magical. Each time I look at it, I see something different, and it never fails to calm me.


Category: "Spirit" is pressed to .25" foamcore to protect the tempera and is ready to be framed. For prints I use Epson Cold Press Bright White archival paper. This 340g water-resistant velvet fine art paper is made from 100% cotton fiber and is acid & lignin free. It is thick durable paper for beautiful archival prints. Please email me for custom-sized prints.
