Mixed media on canvas
Here is the piece where I first incorporated the jute. I love the rough, almost hairy quality it has, and the way it grabs the paint and texture mediums when I drag the brush over it. After areas of the jute has been covered with texture mediums and paint, I like to go back, lay some gauze over, and then go back over again with the mediums. Pretty much, it's just a matter of layering and massaging certain areas to the background while pulling others to the fore. I was happy to sell this piece. It will be hanging on a cruise ship.
