Combining graphite, acrylic and stainless steel on a concrete panel, Twice in a Lifetime is the the latest piece that I created using the discarded panels from a home renovation project. Several hours of sanding and surface preparation were required before I could attempt to apply the subtle graphite gradations and sharp lines with the minute tip of my .7mm mechanical pencil. Multiple layers of acrylic wash were applied resulting in a unique depth of color. Instead of leaving a blank, white border, I decided to contain the movement of the painting within its edges. This effect was achieved by using my fingertips to rub graphite onto the surface.. Finally, painted stainless steel carriage bolts were added at each corner. The bolts give the piece a modern, industrial look while acting as support for the mounting hardware in the back.
