Mixed media/resin paintings at Capitol Arts Network “Born on the 4th….”

These two paintings of my Great Grandfather Downs and Great Grandmother Puterbach are in the Born on the 4th show at the Capitol Arts Network. Opening July 6th in Twin Brook.

My Great Grandfather was a tough old guy and the words on the painting are a letter he wrote about his exploits during The Civil War. Those who knew him say to take it with a grain of salt?

The painting of my Great Grandmother depicts a lady who came over here from Prussia on her honeymoon and stayed to help run a family orchard and teach Latin to kids in the Lopez area (PA).

The process is one of collage and painting on layers of Envirotech resin.

These folks came to this country with great hopes so it seems to fit the theme of the show.
