Home Eye of the Beholder - David M. Ehlen

Inner Light
5 x 17 1/2 x 2 1/2 Inches
Mixed Media / Oil Paint / Canvas

Inner Light is inspired from a painting I created while at SAIC that I had given to a fellow student. I always enjoyed this piece and wanted to create something that kept it alive for me.

The back of the triangle shape is supported with a ribbed support system. At this point I've attached everything together and let it set in the sun for a few days to make sure everything is dry and solid. Painting on a shape like this has to be aggressively done. There are so many holes, divots and variances on the surface that a single brush stroke isn't effective. I call it "overhand painting" I take the brush and push the paint into the surface.
