Enamel on Plexiglass

My friend and fellow artist Sandi Ritchie Miller¬†creates beautiful pieces using enamel paints on lucite. Always up for trying something new, I decided to give it a try on Plexiglass. I found out it was a lot more difficult to get the paint to stick on lucite than on canvas but it was fun playing with a new surface. Here’s a composition inspired by a trip to the Annapolis Maritime Museum. There was this old skipjack lying in the yard behind the museum with all its metalwork rusted and nasty…I loved it! So I just had to paint it.
