down home ~ mixed media, 3.5X14"
If you're a Maritimer and you live away, you won't say that you're heading east for the summer. If talking to friends or family, you will say you are going "down home." This phrase and this sense of place was a big part of my summers growing up. Still is.
Materials: The substrate of 'down home' consists of salvaged wood and a black underlayer ~ it's elegant grunge! Vintage papers include a map of New Brunswick and depth charts from Maine. Scraps of a sewing pattern add interest.
In keeping with the salvaged wood substrate, the sides are unfinished, with scraps of paper and paint drips visible. This piece can be hung, but it is solid wood, so it's probably better displayed on a bookshelf, mantle, or table. This piece is finished with a matte varnish to ensure protection against fading, discolouration, and moisture. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
