From Andrew: The character of the Snow Maiden, also known as "Snegurochka", appears in several different Russian folktales. At the core of the stories is a girl who is made out of snow that comes to life. Whether she falls in love or there's some epic leaping of fire, she usually melts. I decided to make my version of the Snow Maiden
To make the painting, I start out by creating layers of paint and salt on wood paneling. Once everything is dry, I sand down the surface and remove all the crunchies. It creates a really neat patterning. To that, I add more layers of acrylic paintings, iridescent pigments, and metallic paints. And when they're done, I seal them.
