Homeland - SOLD

acrylic on canvas board

I decided to experiment by using only palette knives for this one and forbidding myself to touch a paintbrush. I have a lot of fun smearing color on canvas with palette knives (like I did with the backgrounds for "Penelope" and "Shine"), but using them on such a smale scale as this canvas board was a bit difficult. I think I'll be doing more like this but on larger supports.

At any rate, this image is another that comes from my memories of the outskirts of Billings. For being the biggest city in Montana, it has a lot of rural life left in it. Being out in the mountains of Washington (despite their beauty) makes me miss these familiar plains.
