Introduction: "Metalsmith" Acrylic on Wood Painting

Although I love to make just about anything out of anything else, painting is where I find I can really express myself. This newest piece was created for a metal-smithing friend of mine; using his work as an inspiration, I incorporated layers of metallic paints and tried to play with a lot of different textures within the work. This work draws from the metalsmith's unique mixes of metals, textures, techniques, and materials. I also kept the painting a bit smaller than I would normally work and with thicker sides to see if I could change the painting from a more 2-D plane into an object. The dramatic relief texture and reflective gold and copper paints really do some cool things in different light.
