acrylic glass transfer painting on canvas
42 1/2 x 36 inches
"Certainly I did not invent glass painting, itís been around for centuries, but I have contributed greatly to the removal of acrylic paint from glass to paper or canvas. A great deal of music consist of layered voices, the polyphony that so intrigued Paul Klee. I can achieve the layered look in acrylic glass transfer painting with line spinning, floating, and "enclosing" on top of carefully calculated paint. Working from front (foreground) to back (background) opens the door to such ideas."
