The puzzle piece is part of the Vermont art project (VAC). A blank wooden puzzle piece, 15x15, needing sanding and in individual story, was presented to many artists and groups around the state. I studied it for days before the design moved into vision. first I painted it in reds for the underpainting. After drying, I layered on the golds and neutrals allowing the red to peek through. Because of the oil paint and wax, it still needs some more drying time and then a buffing. When I showed it resting on a chair to a group of artists, we all felt it had found a home as a chair back. Hurrah!
