Summer Greenman

A mix of cool greens and blue greens reminiscent of a forest glade were glazed over the canvas surface and textured with all sorts of things-stamps, leaves, the side of my hand. When that dried, I drew the marvelous, lively face of my friend the greenman and the leaves that spring from his face and head. This one has an acorn nose, as some of my sculptures do, and his eyes sparkle with the humor of a thousand, thousand smiles. More layers of acrylic glaze defined his form, and highlights in his eyes make them look as though he watched you with affection and humor.

Acrylic on canvasboard, 9" x 12".
