"Chicago Fireworks"

Anne Farley Gaines's avatar Anne Farley Gaines

These two photos are the back and front side of my abstract folding screen created in mixed-media on gator board titled "Chicago Fireworks." The surfaces are comprised of acrylic paints, oriental papers, modeling paste, and shapes of stained glass and transparent acrylic sheet. A few buildings from downtown Chicago, close to where we live, are faintly discernible through the paper layers, which creates a mystical affect. On both sides, it is a happy explosion of color and texture.
