Texas Snow Day
"Texas Snow Day" Valentine's Day marks the night of the snowfall of the artic outbreak of 2021 that left 4 million Texans with out power through record freezing temperatures, myself and family being one of them. Knowing I would not be able to get to the studio for some time, I made sure that I got this piece completed that night, 2/14/21. Thinking this would be more of a childcare issue, I poured the piece feeling productive and at ease with taking a few days off from the studio.
When pouring resin, the top coat and sealer, temperature is a factor. Ideally it must be at least 72 F in order to cure. An uncured piece would be left with a tacky film. I did venture out on day 4 to check on the piece with my daughter.
Hurray!!! It did cure and Texas Snow Day was doing just fine!!!!
Despite the stress of the situation, there is a lot of positive energy in this piece. There are layers upon layers of texture paste, metallic blues, pearl white mica, watercolor, ink, heart and soul.
$500 from this sale will be donated in HEB gift cards to Texas families who are in need due to the electrical outages from the storm. The buyer is welcome to nominate the family or we are happy to do so.
This piece is designed to be hung either vertically or horizontally and comes with hardware to accommodate either orientation. Enjoy!!!
36"x 60" mixed media resin on canvas.
