My submission will be a work in progress. I will be working with chalk pastel on multiple oak panels that will be combined to create one large mural of The Last Supper. This piece was inspired from some of the greatest artists over the centuries. Stepping out of my comfort zone forced me to concentrate on my own style and techniques that have made my work recognizable. By using my fingers to blend the chalk, it somehow connects me to the piece I am working on and lets me use the natural grain of the wood itself, to bring the art alive. To see the work from start to finish is what makes this submission so unique. The complexity of the technique and on-site completion will truly amaze! The skills that I have acquired over my lifetime of art has brought me to this one piece....SACRIFICE.
