Calico Reef


Acrylic on wood panel
I had the most fun painting this piece. I started with the skull and brain coral and just winged it from there. I named it Calico Reef after the notorious pirate Calico Jack who was famous for the first skull and crossbones flag and for being hung in Jamaica and put on display to warn other pirates.

I use rough cut cedar wood planks for printing for several reasons. First of all cedar is one of best woods to use for outdoor durability. It is also a lighter wood which makes it easier to hang. For indoor usage cedar gives of a pleasing aroma and the rough-cut texture gives the final prints a very rustic look. Cedar is also one of the most sustainable trees used for lumber.
