Mixed media on cradled wood

The Party After Midnight

Painted in acrylics, ink, colored pencil, wax pastels and pearl mica on deep cradled wood, sealed with an archival, unobtrusive uv-filtering varnish. I created interesting textures from layers of acrylics, including hand sanding to reveal colors beneath. I also rubbed pearl mica  imbedded in clear gel medium into the areas, and then covered some with transparent acrylic color and medium. The texture in the painting captured a mica flake here and there, too, so this has a lovely twinkly to it. Reminds me how much I always loved granite, it's texture and the twinkle of the stone.
