Tikal at Sunrise was inspired by travels to Tikal in Guatemala where there are magnificent Mayan pyramids. Many visitors go specifically to sit on the temples and watch the sunrise. Here the sunrise is rendered as a golden orb peeking from behind the ancient temple structure.
33.5" x 27.5". Acrylic and house paint on gaffer tape and found* board and frame.
*This painting is created with the desire to do artwork sustainably. It was painted on a found canvas and frame meaning that the materials are not new, but repurposed. The slight imperfections add patina and history to the finished product.
