N ♥ J tells the story of a loving relationship growing over time and geography. From their first encounter on a college campus, to their rediscovery of each other during a new life in the city; and their recent celebration of commitment in the mountains, the three panels in this series serve as a visual narration of a couple’s first 10 years together.

Imagery and text significant to the client’s relationship are inscribed into and hand painted on a ground of poured traditional gesso. The work is aged with sanding and finished with several layers of cold wax medium buffed to a satin finish.
