midtsommer bål...

rather than just cut up the oil canvases and use them just as they are (as i have done in the previous works), i decided it was time to add my own marks; with sanding, nail scratches, and areas of oil pastel:

Midtsommer Bål (Midsummer Bonfire) 
7" x 8" x 1.5". recycled oil canvas collage, oil pastel, MDF. 2014

Midtsommer Bål (Midsummer Bonfire)  detail

i titled this work after the huge bonfires that fascinated me as a child when i lived in Norway.

the bonfires were (and still are) lit each midsummer's eve along the coast of Norway to celebrate the summer solstice.
