TURQUOISE Challenge, Leah Hendricks

Gulf Currents 1
24in x 36in, Mixed Media

I was very excited when I saw the announcement for the Turquoise Challenge! Turquoise is my favorite color, and the color I use most frequently in my work. This painting, Gulf Currents 1, utilizes acrylic paint, gel medium, abalone shells, mirrored fragments, craft and issue paper, and metallic powder combined to create waves of textural layers, inspired by the Gulf of Mexico. The painting and textures continue around all sides of the extra wide frame and is part of my TerraScapes series. Gulf Currents 1 is currently on display at the Colorado State Capitol building.
