This Quiet Dust - 72 x 60 in.

This Quiet Dust - 72 x 60 in.

This quiet dust was gentlemen and ladies
And lads and girls;
Was laughter and ability and sighing,
And frocks and curls;
This passive place a summer's nimble mansion,
Where bloom and bees
Fulfilled their oriental circuit,
Then ceased like these.
-Emily Dickinson
This piece uses layers of acrylic paint and handmade cyanotypes on Japanese paper to achieve a composition that is pleasing to the eye. I created texture using plaster and cardboard. I coat the final piece with a thin layer of resin and and finish it with a matte layer of varnish for a look similar to encaustic wax.
