oil and mixed media on cradled panel
Original oil painting.
Unframed, cradled panel sides are finished with clear varnish.
Painting is wired and ready to hang.
Signed, titled and dated on back.
In this painting I left the underlying collage layer showing through the antlers, after fading partway up. I chose to title this painting, symbiosis, as a reference to the symbiotic relationships that occur in nature. I also felt there is a kind of visual symbiotic relationship that occurs between my work between painting (realism) and graphic design elements (flat or decorative elements, space).
