It's the artist's job to call our attention to the beauty that surrounds us. In this case, a dog eared lauhala mat from the studio floor tell's it's own story while the paint chimes in with a colorful song.
24x28x3/4" oil on uniquely textured canvas
Presented in simple black wooden frame
The story behind this painting is I was taking photos, kind of a tour of the studio and when I pointed the camera down, there was this overlooked texture supreme! Of course, the entire surface was white from gesso at one point, but I was strongly impelled to use colors that resemble the actual lauhala mat.
