The Foot Prince Series: These are the first of three series painted on stretched canvas, then taken off the stretchers and hemmed into tapestries. The title “Foot Prince” evokes the vision of a royal prince, having lost his horse, searching to find his way on foot ~ through and out of the forest.

Medium: Acrylic and powder pastel on unprimed canvas, seamed and hemmed into tapestry format.
