Mixed Media Works 2005 ©

Several years ago I visited parts of Northern Ontario where I had not been for many years. I was impressed again with the strong personality of this region. I decided to re-think my approach to image making. I painted square canvases completely with a dark brown acrylic followed by a layer of medium and abrasive. I drew in oil pastel and oil stick over the textured surface.
