"Protection", 32x40",  is a result of an experimental painting using pours of inks, watercolors, and acrylics. I am working on improving my line work to define my compositions and add more contrast. The fish just appeared and nestled up to the top edge a little close. This resulted in having to frame it "floating" - meaning the mat could not cover the edges. All edges are seen and the mat is around the outside. It won the Blue Ribbon, 1st. place award for Mixed Media at the recent Westlake Library Juried Show at Smith Mountain Lake. Sold
