Deep Dive (12×12 inches coloured pencil on paper unframed) 2022


This piece was created using soft-core pencil, pastel, acrylic paint and graphite on high quality 184 lb mixed media paper. Lots of smudging, blending and Sgrafitto technique (scraping back layers) was used to create texture. Wax paper transfer was used to create the small spidery marks.

There is no intent to create an image that looks like something. Rather, the work is an expression of things observed, seen, felt and thought about in the everyday.
I called this Deep Dive. I was reminded of swimming underwater, looking up, and seeing all the shapes and patterns and colors moving around me.

Art is shipped in a sturdy dent-resistant cylindrical tube.

Please let me know via if you would like this piece framed. We can discuss options.
