This is my newest piece inspired by one of my favourite artists, frida kahlo, and again following the theme of stencil graffiti art. It's painted black gesso on mdf, a coat of deep red acrylic, then white acrylic. It was then scratched,sanded, then the image painted in oil. In the bottom right I attached a piece of foil I had embossed. The final piece was covered with a resin coat, plus a few sprinkles of fine silver glitter.
I seem to be at a stage in my art life where I enjoy the unexpected (which I suppose is why graffiti/street art and found art appeals to me) more than anything else. Well I found it at a gas station in the middle of nowhere in Kentucky. Talk about kitsch, and odd, and unexpected. It was pure fun to explore. I don't know who did it or why, but I love that it was there.
