Three Birds on Cherry Blossom Tree

This is recent commissioned painting I completed for a Chicago couple. The imagery is all painted by hand and I gave the surface an aged, crackled finish to complement the style of the piece. I also layered plasters and paint to achieve a textured, weathered look.
Medium: Acrylic, Plaster, Wood, Salvaged Leather, and Metal Bolts on Masonite
[Note: the salvaged leather comes from antique horse gear (bridles, reins, etc)].
Size (h x w): 40" x 30" (masonite box size)

"Into The Deep"

This is an underwater mural I painted recently in a residence in Woodstock, IL. The clients enjoy scuba diving and wanted the piece to feel like you were under the sea, looking out onto a colorful coral reef scene.
