The Circular Tropical is one of the most popular in Michelle Woolley’s atelier. The process of painting on wood enables her to recreate the countenance of an ancient fresco. Using the wood’s grain as her canvas, she employs multiple hand layered painting techniques to build the background, and, once completed, she then sketches her design directly onto the surface.
Then Woolley incorporates the painstaking application of paints to create colors and textures intrinsic to the piece. The addition of layer upon layer of glazes and varnishes consummates the artwork’s depth and translucency, similar to that of stained glass. In the end, she looks for total unity in design, accenting each work of art with the perfect frame and accenting each piece with pure gold or silver leaf and Swarovski Crystals reflecting the Tommy Bahama feeling of hospitality.
