This was painted, over the course of a year, on a canvas that has been worked and reworked, sanded, gessoed, sanded again, glazed, rubbed, painted, scraped, and painted again. Dozens of layers of jewel-tone copal resin give the colors depth, like a stack of stained-glass windows. The duotone triadic harmony of the purple and green make the colors jump and glow. The surface shines like a candy glaze.
