"Been There Done That," 27" x 19"
27” x 19” x 1.5” mixed media painting on wood panel.
"This piece has an interesting story to go with it. Like most people during covid I had a lot of time on my hands. Puzzles were all the rage, and I was right there along for the ride. I can’t even tell you how many I did. When I did this one called Flags of the World, I kept thinking I have to do something with this one. I had a special panel made for its exact size and glued the puzzle on. I painted the overlay as a fun way for people to look at the flags and pick out which places they had been to. The resin overlay was the final touch, one because it looks great and two because it ensures the puzzle will not come apart."
