Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas (1.5 inches Deep)
Especially aged paint created one-of-a-kind texture in this classy abstract of copper & red copper pearls, with accenting white pearl. This painting is not a fingerpainting, nor was it made with brush, nor palette knife even! It was made with the entire palette pressing on to the canvas using a sliding technique, making this very unique!
As Ruth saw what fascination appeared, she realized she could not get this texture at will. If she added more lumps, it would not look the same. It would require waiting another 3 years for the paint to age like wine or cheese, to perfection. So this is a one of a kind painting.
That's the "paradigm" part of the painting name, where the realization of something makes this shift in your mind. You now see it in a different light. The paradigm is the shift from wasted paint, to a creation of interest. Plus the lumps of paint can't be reproduced with gritty mediums, as the textures used, has a cloudy lump texture, gel-like, & soft, yet has substance. This took many years to form the paint in this manner to be utilized for preservation on a canvas now.
Ruth often forms dried paint into sculpted forms in a painting, but some paint is captured before fully cured, that form taffy-like textures, or like here that are jelly-like, are textures not easy to capture.
