My River Wildlife on Panel series is on display at the Menomonee Valley Urban Ecology Center located at 3700 W. Pierce St. Milwaukee, WI 53215
For these works I experimented with homemade egg tempera paint and a mud or clay egg mixture. I built the wood panels and incorporated the natural wood grain into some of the pieces. In the past I have used acrylic paint and latex sealant for my mud stencils on panel. I am excited that I can now make my works on panel completely non-toxic as well. In the process of researching natural paints I discovered that there a quite a few options for non-toxic interior house paints. They are usually milk or clay based paint. I think that natural paints for art use has a lot of potential.
