Dependence

This painting was started by using a messy background that was accomplished using inks, acrylics, heavy body gel medium and stencils for texture. You can see the texture of the gel medium being utilized in the fish and some raised letters and symbols hidden in the background. I used some drywall tape and randomly smooshed some medium into the holes and it worked to give me some texture and direction in the painting, I like this method of intuitive painting because it does not force the work, it just allows it to develop naturally.
When I was working on this I had to make a few adjustments as I went. The biggest challenge was connecting the human and fish form This is where I added the tongue with the fishing line - problem solved. For added interest you can also find some charcoal pencil mark making and a fun foam fish stamp that I pulled from my collection.
Hope you enjoy and remember sharing is caring.

Hi everyone, Hope everyone is staying warm. I thought I would try and get this one in before the big Hockey game starts. For those who dont know it is the Heritage classic an outdoor professional NHL game between Calgary and Montreal. Only the second time being played in Canada! Well it is -30 celcius with the wind chill so it will be interesting to see who will be victorious without to many injuries. I dont even like hockey but it is part of my life since getting married so...i thought I would share my pain... ;) lol
Anyways Hope you like the new mini
