The current textural background on Theory and Practice belongs to an equally textural painting called "Nurturing Through the Word", which measures 29" x 37".
Since the linen is mounted on a panel I was able to take an active palette knife approach to this piece. The outermost layer is made using Gamblin's Galkyd Gel, so it is physically thicker than the other surfaces.
The frame is a coated custom-welded steel floater frame from A Street Frames in Cambridge, MA. I highly recommend them for unique contemporary wood and steel frames.
