The Mountain Is Magic Canvas

Created this mixed media piece for my dad's 74th birthday.
The photo is of me and my brother as kids running down a hill at a park by our house -
it was nicknamed Magic Mountain.

The photo i put in a cheap frame but without the frame - the glass and backing is duct taped together then the "frame" layered on an old book cover i ripped off the binding then put on top of screen and home made paper.

The background is created of layers of acrylic paint, gesso and dripped wax. The texture is Golden Pumice Gel mixed with paint and different beads and buttons embedded into it. Also if you notice the dice on the corners - they show the number 74 :)

A couple of weeks ago I created This Piece for my friend Ashley - obviously it's extremely similar - but this layout, the use of monotone color and materials are really turning me on right now. I'm thinking of doing an entire series of Hipstamatic photos and colors ... stay tuned!
