Puzzled Out

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!
