Be Brave. Angels  •  Street Views

“Maybe you should paint a piece about your fear,” she suggested…. 

This painting is gritty and messy with layers of texture…much like Life, right? The primary color palette is coppery orange and turquoise blue, but blacks and grays, burgundy, greens and reds also make their appearance. The ever dependable crow raises the bleeding heart on a string from the street below where a cemetery angel is spray painting the message “be brave’…. and to answer that question that is forming in your mind: no, I do not take drugs…

This original mixed media piece is created with vintage papers and acrylics, charcoals and inks on a 30x30inch canvas with 1.5inch sides that have been painted blackest black. The whole painting has been coated with a clear matte finish, however it does have a sheen to it. The painting is wired in the back and suitable for hanging unframed.
