Green Head is one of the first pieces I created based on a trip I took to New Orleans. The city is all about experimental artworks with some edge to them It is about pushing the boundaries of the medium you choose. After creating over 50 pieces in the Element series of painting, Green Head marked a transition as I began to incorporate several raw cooking ingredients into my art for the purpose of creating texture on the wood surfaces. After doing so many seascapes and landscapes for the Element series I wanted to go back to something that was familiar and comfortable to paint... faces. This was the result. Green Head is 24"x24" mix media art on wood surface.
