loppestre – mixed media collage, 6X6 inches
Quite simply, lobster. This funny crustacean and its scent is such a significant part of my childhood memories. Our sense of smell is considered one of the most potent triggers of memory. This piece reminds me of gathering in my grandmother’s kitchen during the summer. There was so much lively conversation and so much movement as people cracked and pulled the lobster meat. Many members of my family, including my grandfather, fished lobster in New Brunswick. A few still do.
Materials: This painting features layers of papers, including some that have been eco-dyed with rust, along with chalk paint. The sides are painted black so it’s ready to hang (no framing required) or to display on a shelf, bureau, piano, etc. This is an original mixed media painting on a wood panel consisting of a 3 mm birch surface cradled on a 1.5" thickness gallery wood frame. Signed on reverse. This piece features encaustic (beeswax). Encaustic pieces may be lightly polished or dusted with a lint free cloth. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
