Reclaimed Materials


Fiddleheads and Poppies. Oil on Canvas. 16" x20". This painting was made from a reclaimed canvas and frame. The textures were achieved by mixing large amounts of linseed oil to the paint and allowing each layer to dry in the sun. Giclée prints can be purchased from the artist.
