This original work of art is painted on a 36" x 36" x 2" cradled art panel/board. It is a solid surface. I began this painting by creating an underlay of metals and then applying layers of intense transparent colors on top. The metals under the paint glint and sparkle like glass on fire. Depending on the angle of the light, the piece seems to dance with changing colors and internal light. It looks amazing in candle light too
This painting is very colorful with vibrant aqua turquoise brilliant greens and deep violet blues in the water. The gold flowers have flames of gold, amber and deep but transparent umber. The other two flowers are magenta and violet. its perfect for today's trends on decorating where aqua and turquoise are once again taking center stage. It has a high gloss finish
Linda Paul:Artists Statement:When asked What is your favorite painting, I always say, the next one I am going to paint! Style: I don't paint in any one style, I let inspiration speak to me and I go with the flow. My work runs the gamut from chunky realism to abstract and impressionist painting. I use many different mediums to create my artworks. One of my favorites is egg tempera which I make by crushing stones and minerals and adding egg yolk. Blues come from crushed lapis lazuli, greens from malachite and natural green earth found around Verona Italy. This medium is luminous and lasts for centuries.I also make my own acrylic paint in the same manner. By adding pure pigment to a acrylic polymer. I can add thing like crushed mica and pearlescents to make the painting come alive. Lately I have also been working with glass and precious metal like silver, copper and 23 karat goldArtist's Inspiration:I am inspired by so many things! I especially like nature in all her forms. I like concepts, process and abstract ideasIn my still life/landscape paintings, like to juxtapose sculpted bas-relief products of nature (the chunky part) against soft impressionist landscapes of their origins.
