This large Abalone painting was one of my most fulfilling and challenging works, due to the application of dozens of layers of metallic powders, glazes, and impasto textures over several months time. Countless layers of tinted glaze were applied to add depth and color tone in various parts of the interior shell, and metallic powders were tinted, mixed and layered color over color, to give this painting the lustrous iridescence and reflective qualities of a real abalone shell.

The sides are painted in black satin, and the work comes ready to hang.
