New directions - mixed media water tank

Water Tank (Chicago Maps), mixed media on panel, 36x36, work in progress, 2012

This painting is a new direction for me. I've been wanting to loosen things up lately and this piece is getting me closer to what I envision.

It's a mixed media painting where I collaged maps of Chicago on panel and combined layers of acrylic paint and oil bars. It's been fun working on a solid wooden surface again and applying a new technique.

It's just about finished and it already has me coming up with more ideas for the next piece in this new series...
