Story~ After painting my car with the colorful and brilliant polyurethane paints I wanted to do some gallery pieces made of this bright brushed metal and the polyurethane candy car paints. I thought mixing the idea of the modern bright style with the age old celebration of wine would be a fun twist. I enjoy playing around and exploring the possibilities of this modern medium inbetween painting my oils and watercolors.
ART: FOUR Brushed Aluminum 3/8" thick plates approximately 7 1/4" x 6 3/4" Space mounted (for drop shadow) on a hand routed poplar wood panel... ready to hang.
MEDIUM: POLYURETHANE CANDY PAINTS (candy car paints) ON CUSTOM BRUSHED METAL WITH PINSTRIPING & CLEAR COAT
SIGNATURE~ Front: Signed Back: Full signature and Dated with Mini bio sheet with painting details
Ready to hang~
This is a very unique vineyard grape vine piece of art. It has a modern edge, and a classy elegance all of it's own. The hand brushed bright aluminum plates are painted with "candy" polyurethane's. I then clear coat the plates and did the finishing details with pin-striping paints and brushes. The four art plates were then space mounted (with a small wood block to add space) for drop shadow depth to the hand routed solid poplar wood panel that I stained and varnished.
This painting would look stunning as an accent in a restaurant or wine bar or as a conversation piece in a home kitchen!
I especially recommend lighting brushed metal art with halogen track lighting for full effect of drop shadows and depth of reflection. They also look beautiful lit with small string lighting.
