Indian Roller Epiphany
2013
18.5 width x 74.625 height x 2 depth
Paint, Walnut, 3-D Wall Art, Oil, Canvas, LED lighting

The epiphany is really inspired by the uniqueness of this birds variety in color. Vibrant blues and red, and in some variants yellows and greens. Here employing smooth brush strokes on canvas better reflect the Indian Roller. This is a custom canvas since I wanted to match the width of the top portion without cutting the wood. The great find in this slab of walnut yielded a beautiful open knot that just begged for a touch of yellow to reflect the painting. A soft glow of blue LED lighting emanates low from behind the base, drawing you into viewing the entire length of this piece. oil on canvas (11h x 15w custom canvas), walnut slab, blue LED lighting, wall relief
