4" x 4" x 1.5"
Acrylic on deep gallery-wrapped canvas
These two houses are such fun. I was amazed that I could
convey a sense of anxiety or tension with such simple shapes and
lines. But don't these houses look like they are yearning to
be free of each other? I love that. This is a playful,
colorful little landscape with a grand open composition and some
interesting textures. I am hopeful this piece will bring
comfort and smiles to some fellow loner out there.
How Overcrowding was created..... After priming this canvas with black acrylic gesso, I used palette knives to create the highly textured grassy area. Once that dried, I used brushes of varying sizes to build this unique scene up layer by layer.
(The image continues around the deep 1.5" staple-free sides. This is a digital photo. The scans above are more accurate.)
Overcrowding was painted on a professional quality gallery-wrapped canvas with deep 1.5" sides. This piece would look wonderful displayed unframed either directly on the wall or on a small, decorative table-top easel. It is also very stable standing on edge and can be displayed that way on a shelf or table.
