Never Alone

Renee Michaud's avatar Renee Michaud

This mixed media piece features the sculpting of venetian plaster on the canvas prior to working on the surface. This heavily textured substrate allows greater depth and richness to the finished piece. Never Alone was created through use of graphite, charcoal, india ink, gesso, acrylic paint and drywall compound. These elements are applied in part by a hand and cloth manipulation that through rubbing brings a sheen to the venetian plaster. Later brushes, sponges, scraping tools and pens are used to define the composition. Never Alone was created to remind us that we are endowed with the Spirit of life. That even in the darkest of times Faith will sustain and strengthen us as we seek to protect ourselves and those we love.
