The Lakeland Exit

Mixed Media Marquetry – Northwoods Panel #10 – Aug. 2010 – 14”x18” – SOLD

When I started the sketch for this Nort’woods themed piece, I had in mind a fence of Escheresque distortionalism, with the posts and rails impossibly conjoined and the bears on both sides at once; but  then a more subtle, and laughable, scenario took hold, suggestive of the cartoons of my childhood, and a title derived from them – “Exit, stage left“! Composed of Gumwood, green-dyed Sycamore, watercolored-blue Tiger Maple, Red Oak, Quilted Birch, dyed and natural Birds-eye Maple, African Mahogany, Ribbon Mahogany, Zebrawood, red-dyed Sycamore, and red-dyed Tiger Maple, with the details in colored pencil and oil paints.
