This is a joyful tribute to friendship and some of the excitable and sometimes heated discussions I recall with fondness between myself, friends and colleagues. The image of the boatmen is an allegory to those memories.
It is a mixed media piece with acrylics and carbon transfers. It has been coated with my homemade beeswax/dammar/carnauba wax encaustic.
The frame is handmade custom pine that is stained and waxed.
The back is signed , wired and ready to hang.
This piece is accompanied with a handmade wooden dinghy. It is unfixed to the frame and can be placed to one's liking. I find it sits best on the top right corner facing right but it can travel anywhere...to another painting...
The framed work is 11.75" x 13" x 2.5"
The dinghy is 4.5" x 1.5" x 1.5"
