How is this work made?
The same multi-layered process is used in all of my abstract paintings. First I select colored inks for their brilliance and ability to move freely across nonporous paper. Once the design is created, the work is adhered to a birch board (1/2" to 1 3/4" thick.) Next, coats of resin are applied to produce a "shiny objects" glow. Finally any resin bubbles that may have surfaced, are eliminated with a scary propane torch.
No need for a frame. This contemporary abstract is mounted on a birch panel. The bare wood sides are stained with teak oil (see example.)
