One Touch of Nature Painting
Subtle shades of nature create a landscape that can be placed in almost any hemisphere, with sky and earth being universal. Etched into the painting is a quote from Shakespeare, which reads, "One touch of nature makes us all kin."*
Painted in cold wax and oil on a wood panel, the pieces measures 14" x 11" and is 2" deep. It is fitted with a wire hanger for wall display but would work just as well displayed on a shelf of treasures.
*The quote is Troilus and Cressida, delivered by Ulysses.
ARTIST STATEMENT—painting is a daily exercise for me, as I continue to discover ways to express myself through art. As an assemblage artist, exploring this medium opens up a different portal, so to speak. Different textures, colors, shapes, and even sounds, emerge with each new piece. My goal is to create work that represents how I see the world around me, and at the same time, work that others can bring into their own surroundings and attach to it their own interpretation.
