Mixed media consist of acrylic, plants, wood bark string, burlap, and resin on canvas.
Card Players is part of the “Moments in Time” series. It depicts four boys hanging out on the beach at Ocean City, New Jersey, playing cards and listening to the radio, sometime during the 1950’s. It was inspired by old family photos. Two of the boys are my uncles. It symbolizes a slower, more innocent time, when the most important technology was the family radio.
While painting on this canvas I did not have a subject in mind. I was more interested in the various mediums I kept applying so I would say I was working intuitively. As I progressed I began to notice circles appearing. I thought this must have something to do with my current life. My projects are many but never completed. I am running around in circles.
