Shadow box #21 ~ Grazing

12" X 12". The background painting is a watercolor with pastel and charcoal. As with "The Light Trees", I sprayed the finished painting with polyurethane to fix the pastel dust, then coated it with acrylic gel medium. The inset of the horses was done with acrylic on watercolor paper which has been wrapped around a block of foam core. It stands out from the background.

The stick has been sanded and coated with acrylic gel medium. It is secured with jeweler's glue.

The thin, brown frame around the opening edge is watercolor paper painted with acrylic. The outside, natural wood frame has been sanded and finished with varnish.
