Mini Fifth Day
Mixed media on panel
6 X 6 inches

This piece is a miniature (6 X 6 inches) based upon the earlier painting Fifth Day. It was created specifically for the Rochester Contemporary Art Center (Roco6x6), which has an annual fundraiser in support of their outreach programming. Unfortunately the timing did not work out: the piece was prepared in time but posting it out to New York by the deadline was problematic. This one will probably find its way out to the Chaffey Community Museum of Art for inclusion in the 25-50-75-100 sale at the end of the year. A year from now I hope to have a new work to send on to the group in New York.

The work uses a 6 X 6 inch Ampersand panel, textured with an acrylic based modeling paste. Acrylic paint is applied by brush and airbrush and collage papers are applied. Wooden and metal forms are added, and then the hand and whale images were airbrushed onto the surface.
