Mesh Coated Surface Acrylic Painting

I have been experimenting with my painting surface as an extension of my steel mesh sculpture. Lately I have adhered fiberglass mesh, the kind used for screen doors, to wood panels. I prime the surface with gesso after adhering the the mesh and end up with a very different support.

 This painting was inspired by shadows on the curtains in my kitchen.







 This painting was inspired by the shadow across the kitchen table. It is aptly named Morning Coffee. It was recently on display at the Larimar Art Center in Palatka, Fl.






I have also done a number of landscapes in this style. I hope to have them displayed in this blog soon.

In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
