Art Pick of the Month, September 2017

September 2017 Art Selection

“Clockwork Orange” – a challenging piece finished in August and on its way to the ALE Gallery for future shows. Named in part for the trio of giraffes feeding on prickly acacia limbs was inspired by an imagined scene in the final chapter of my third novel, Mercy in Masquerade.  It’s a layered piece beginning with a marbled acrylic underpainting followed by added layers of transparent acrylic over the marbling which help to create added dimensions of depth.
