Tranquility was inspired by  the calm stillness which settles in around us as our focus turns toward the soothing sounds of creation—waves softly lapping at waters edge, a gentle breeze caressing nearby trees, mourning doves cooing on the freshly mowed lawn—all expressing their appreciation for another day. 

This 40" x 30" painting is one of my personal favorites. It took 4-1/2 months and over 22 layers of acrylic mediums, tissue paper, paints and glazes to create. The underlying painting of aqua, rust and brown with tissue paper texture is subtly visible beneath the heavy acrylic relief, deepening the overall pale, dusty aqua green tone of the artwork. Golden brown and raw umber areas of texture are scumbled with metallic gold to add depth and highlights.
