4' x 4' Parágo by Lorenda Harder -- Mixed media acrylic
Parágo, meaning "produce" in Greek gave me particular challenges due to the nature and application of its mixed media and techniques: Layering paper, colours, lines, scumbling, dry brush, metallics. I'm quite pleased with the result because, although it is a significant size at four by four feet, it has an overall easygoing feel to it. I get the sense that I am sitting in the vineyard sipping a well-aged red - It holds a warm and welcoming presence. Have you ever slipped into a vineyard on a late autumn day to meander down the row?
