"Canada", 30" X 48", acrylic on canvas, 2010.

More or less recent paintings. Continuing along with the theme of cans that have been transformed by a traumatic encounter. The "Roadkill" painting was added again as this image is a much better representation of the original.

'Road Kill', the Slow Reveal

I tend to follow the same process with each painting. The drawing is done on tracing paper using a grid then transfered to canvas. Every step following that is detailed above.

Apologies for the really bad photos but our little digital camera is not kind to large flat surfaces (I still use film). Promise a good image of this and others when I find a way to do them justice.

The painting is called 'Road Kill', 46" X 30", acrylic on canvas, ca. 2010.
