New work at art show
Last weekend I participated in the annual show of the Israeli Artists Group of Toronto with some new artwork. The show was very nice and I got a lot of encouragements from our visitors, especially with the Battered Life paining.
These are mixed media paintings. They are watercolors on paper, which was first stretched on a panel. The entire painting is then covered with clear wax, protecting the painting underneath and giving it depth and the look-and-feel of encaustic work.
I spent quite some time on Battered Life, so I am glad people “get it”. Many told me that it speaks to them, evoking emotional reaction. That I did something, or many things, right.
