ROPE©

At the West Palm Beach Marina I was mesmerized by all the heavy marine cord of tightly intertwined natural fiber!
Back home I started this painting a year ago -and I don't know why- I never finish it.
Finally I got inspired and I'm pretty pleased with this result.
It is as if the knot of this three dimensional is popping out of its frame!
As finishing touch I bought a rustic wooden frame, which has the same color value as the painting.
It really gives ROPE© an extra dimension.
Definitely a great painting for a beach house!
But first it will be a point of interest while hanging in my solo exhibit September 7-14!

Contemporary Collage/painting on a canvas panel.
Medium: Mixed media, mainly acrylics with an "oil paint effect"-finish.

Dimensions: 11'x14' (28x 35.5 cm)
Total Frame: 14'x17'(35.5x43.5 cm)

MATERIALS:
I only use archival and Museum-Grade acid free material (even the glue) for maximum longevity.
