Wolf Kahn Type Painting

The original small pastel on the left was the basis for the painting, "Edge of the Field" on the right. The pastel was done when visiting an apple orchard then used a year later as the basis of an my original acrylic painting with accents of pastel.

As an admirer of the work of Wolf Kahn, I have used his process (capturing a scene plein aire) and then using it to create vibrant art.

The painting on the left is titled "Orchard Path" and the other is a small pastel completed plein aire in an apple orchard.
I have long admired the work of Wolf Kahn, known for his pastels and oils and I have followed his process of using small on-site creations to create a larger painting in acrylic with pastel accents.

Repurposed Art Construction

These two construction pieces were made from old watercolor paintings. The paintings were covered with gel medium and fluid acrylics on both sides of the paper. The art was then folded and laced to form pouches to hold dried material. Hangars added the final touch!
