With a Color of Romance
Original art by Vanessa Sharp Multon
36 H x 36 W x 1.5 in
Painting: Acrylic and 23 K Gold Leaf on Canvas.
This painting has a nice, thick texture that was created with a combination of brushstrokes and a palette knife. It shimmers with touches of 23 K gold leaf and iridescent paint. The painting is on a professional quality gallery wrapped canvas. The sides have been painted gray and it has a satin varnish to protect it from dust and UV rays. It has been strung with wire and is ready to hang.
With a net of shining haze
Silvers the horizon wall,
And with softness touching all,
Tints the human countenance
And infusing subtle heats,
Turns the sod to violets,
Thou, in sunny solitudes,
Rover of the underwoods,
With thy mellow, breezy bass.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson (excerpt from "Humblebee")
