“Look” by Terry Honstead

This 24 x 16 mixed media piece was done starting with joint compound on the support. I used a roller on it to add a texture and then waited for it to dry. I didn’t like how bumpy it turned out, so I took a chisel to it and took off the top edges. It added wonderful light squiggles in the titan buff background. I then transfered a picture that was taken of a rusty metal ornament on a brick wall. I used a snake skin for the branch and hornet’s nest fiber for the birds nest. I also added parts of an old piece of lace, a doily, some music, writing, a broken piece of leather, some letters, some pages from and old book, some feathers, and an old dried up leaf. It was a lot of fun designing this painting. I was going to put some scrolls on in a couple of places with built up texture, but decided to go with oil based colored pencils instead.
