Hoo-Punked, Steampunk, Phoenix Owl Rising - This painting is on a 24" x 24" gallery wrapped canvas. The first surface started with modeling paste, staining, pouring, subtractive technique, bronze and silver glazing, and then the forever details. You can see what you want, but the intent is the owl moves it's wing and the sun and planets rise and set via my mechanical "Steam Punk" owl.. Lot's of layers, silver and bronze added to give it the "mechanical" "Steam Punk" feel. The background on one planet is poured in clear tar gel with bronze mixed in and the background behind that is "The Nobel Wife" from the bible under another layer of clear pouring medium so it glows. So, in a sense, my husband tolerates my artwork and is my camera man - I guess this "Hoo" punked is his.
