Now Available! An ancient tide carves deeply into layers of earth through seasons, years and centuries to reveal the molten bedrock below. The salty waves bend and curl around the rocks, creating new lines and shapes with each thrust and withdrawal of the tide.
In this painting, the artist layered glazes of oil paint to add luminance to the colors. Some areas are carefully blended while others are applied with a painting knife to set in contrast the rich texture. Painted on a 20" x 16" gallery wrap canvas, the water flows around the 1.5" deep edge and adds more dimension to the piece. It is wired and ready to hang, or may pop into floater frame that reveals the edges. All materials in this oil painting are of archival quality for lasting impressions.
One of a series of oil paintings on the North American Landscape by Pat Cross.
