Sale! "Angry Canary Escapes the Coal Mines" This painting is on sale , original price - $165.00.
A whimsical...and yet not, commentary on the frustration many of us feel about the unremitting pollution of our air and earth.
An allusion to caged canaries that miners would carry down into the mines with them. If dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide collected in the mine, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners...are we there yet?
This is one of my original acrylic paintings mounted on a "cradled" wood panel. It's ready to hang by the attached picture wire on the back. The dimensions are: 10.5" x 8.25" x .75"
Each of my paintings is a collection of under paintings. I build up layers of paint and texture before I introduce a figure. This provides a rich backdrop for the image to live on. It also helps me to mentally prepare for the story I'm about to tell.
I use symbolism to communicate my thoughts and ideas. The symbols I use create a pictorial language that I share with my audience. Each piece is a unique expression of my response to my inner world and the world around me.
