Palm #3, 2017, Jo-Ann Sanborn
Acrylic on cradled board, 4" x 4"
Another palm. These small paintings are fun to do on cradled board. It's a multi-layered process, first covering the block with a textured gel, then doing an abstract color layer, then finding the palm in the paint, sometimes completely changing the background, and finally the highlights.
They can be hung just on a push pin or set on an easel. You can find a small spot, maybe half hidden, like on the wall under a lampshade. Every time you turn on the light, you will get the delight of finding a little gem.
