"Grazing I" and "Grazing II" by Kristin Jurist Haakenson

"Grazing I" & "Grazing II" by Kristin Jurist Haakenson
acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas
8" x 8" x 1.5"
$115 each or $200 for the pair + either $15 or $20 shipping (contact)

I bought some crackle paste awhile ago and finally decided to try it out. I combined it with a light molding paste so that the centers of the canvases wouldn't be as crackly.

These two can be hung individually or as a pair. Grazing I has more of a reddish tint to it, and Grazing II has a lighter tan tint.

I will leave in the hills a bit of myself--
The heat of my eyes which saw them bloom;
And cicadas, nesting on thorny branches,
Will sing out the shrill cry of my desire.
-Anna de Noailles, from "The Imprint"

  1. These two paintings are really cool! I love the cracked background. It looks like adobe soil when it dries and cracks after a lot of rain. The bison are so nicely rendered, too.
