Today I’m introducing my latest fine art painting. It’s called “Absolute: Privilege” and features an antique scratch awl, two pieces of ripped paper, and a leaf from a blooming cherry blossom. The piece is painted on reclaimed cherry wood and is mounted into a frame from the 1800’s. All of the hardware on the back is hand-made specifically for this piece. Totaling around 17″ tall by 15 1/4″ wide (framed), the piece is actually a rounded rectangle recessed into a the carved out rectangle in the back of the frame. This space was where the original photograph and glass were mounted.

Absolutely A Bolder Painting
Today I’m introducing my newest oil painting in the “Absolute” series, “Absolute: Denial”. Like its predecessors, this is framed and painted on entirely reclaimed wood.
