Calling the Commonwealth of Virginia “home” is very special. This “Virginia Home” painting celebrates that sentiment with a beautiful hand painted Virginia state outline with the word “home” in flowing cursive font at the bottom. A recycled pallet canvas was chosen specifically to celebrate the farmland here in Virginia, which have miles of quintessential fencing, often painted white or black. Local pickup only due to weight and fragility.
Process: the “canvas” of this painting is made of a reclaimed wooden pallet. After the pallet is disassembled, the individual pieces are cut, planed (with care to preserve some of the rough-hewn features), and re-assembled. The canvas is then painted with outdoor acrylic paint in a beautiful black before the design is hand painted onto the pallet canvas with six coats of acrylic paint.
