Winter Peppergrass original mixed media painting by Polly Jones


12" square acrylic and mixed media on gessoed masonite with raised wooded circles. You can click on the image for more details. SOLD

I'm finally done with this one. It was a day for going back to older, unfinished work and trying to resolve them. I love how the remnants of different stages show through. The image is one of a weed called peppergrass. It's an image I've used several times...just enthralled with it's form I guess. Lately the winter sun has been shining in my studio at such a low bright angle. It's entirely different from the summer sunshine. This artwork is a way for me to capture that oblique cool light.

really nice Polly - oh and thanks for the follow. I studied Hopkins at school when I didn't really appreciate him but I do now.
