Tapestry

Tapestry
11X14
Oil on Linen Board


Inspiration for Tapestry
Hydrangeas from Pike Street Market
Seattle, Washington


Tapestry is my newest work, and was inspired by the blue hydrangeas I photographed in Seattle at Pike Street Market. My goal with this painting was to throw out convention and have a little bit of fun. I've discovered that linen boards do not drink the paint like cotton duck canvas does, and so the brush marks remain fat and give the work a little extra dimension. I love expressive brushwork and the texture it brings.
