Ebb and Flow

oil and cold wax medium on panel




Ebb and Flow portray a calming and abstract dance of seafoam and waves. This play of oil and cold wax medium on wood panel evokes depth, complexity, and emotion in my work. I explore complex layers, unique textures, and abstract compositions with oil and cold wax. My painting is built by making marks, applying color, carving, and sculpting layer by layer, working with palette knives, shaping tools, oil sticks, brushes, and graphite.
