AWAKENING LIGHT, original, mixed media on 76x60cm stretched 3.5cm deep edge canvas. My new technique featuring imitation gold leaf, layers of watercolours and ground pigments. Fibres and charcoal pigments create an intriguing texture in the first layers. It has a double chromatic effect which changes with the direction of light. I’m inspired by the beautiful Japanese art of #Kintsugi. Gold is used to make new, rather than repair broken vessels, making it more valuable than before. . I love the concept of art helping us to heal. Whether we are a creator ourselves , or one who loves and admires the creations of artisans. Every work I create has a piece of myself in it. I always hope to uplift and inspire others through my creations.
