The Dog Dream Series continues with the addition of Fly Away Home I and II.
Here are close-ups of the surfaces of the two paintings:
The current pieces continue the concept of a sleeping dog finding himself lost in his neighborhood trying to find his way home thwarted by birds.
The paintings are done on canvas wrapped braced boards using rabbit skin glue based gesso. The surfaces are built up with layers of encaustic, oil bar and metal leaf. The finished pieces are 12″ x 12″ each, unframed.
