lynn hanson biography
I have recently started using cold wax and oil paint in my artistic practice. I am loving the way it works with the direction I am going with my paintings. Layers of color are built up, carved into and built upon again. It is like excavating to find what is hidden beneath the surface, and then rebuilding. The colors are rich with the oil paint added to the cold wax medium. The texture is somewhat like frosting a cake. Squeegies, scrapers, brayers and carving tools are used in this process. There is an element of surprise that I really enjoy in the process.
