This painting was done using a staining technique. Helen Frankenthaler, who used oil to stain her unprimed canvases, greatly influenced this painting. Because I used acrylic, and not oil paint, I will not have trouble with the canvas rotting as some of hers are beginning to do. Presently, this painting is in an exhibit at the Art Association of Harrisburg in PA and has taken an award in the "Structures" exhibit. The reception is Sunday, September 13 starting at 11:00 am. This is a starting point for the Gallery Walk in Harrisburg, PA the same day from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. If in the area, come join us. Many galleries and local business will be exhibiting and selling art. If interested in purchasing, contact Carrie Wissler Thomas or Terri Hosey at 717-236-1432 until mid Oct.
