“Looking-Glass River" original art by Kasey Wanford
Looking-Glass River, an original painting by Kasey Wanford in 2023.
This painting is named after the poem of the same name by Robert Louis Stevenson:
Smooth it glides upon its travel,
Here a wimple, there a gleam –
O the clean gravel!
O the smooth stream!
Patience, children, just a minute –
See the spreading circles die;
The stream and all in it
Will clear by-and-by.
26 x 20 inches in size. Alcohol inks and acrylic on yupo.
Yupo paper is a synthetic substrate made of 100% polypropylene. It is non-absorbent, so water media paints like fluid acrylics spread on the surface in interesting ways before they dry. I enjoy working on yupo! Once the underlayer is dry, I use acrylic markers and heavier body acrylic paints to form a composition that responds to the pathways made by the fluid paints.
Unframed. This painting will ship carefully rolled within parchment paper inside a mailing tube.
