River Wildlife on Panel on Display at UEC

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.
