A set of two original abstracts inspired in part by the memory of a piece of tapestry used by my mother in the early sixtiesand in part by a lovely pottery vase I strongly admired by an unknown potter.
The tapestry inspired texture on this pair of abstracts was created with tissue paper secured with an acrylic gel medium. The overall color was inspired by the tapestry used by my mother. The aqua circles which seem to float on the brushed olive green background were created with modeling paste and were inspired by the pottery vase I admired. A thin platinum glaze was applied over all and accentuates the textured areas.
Paintings wrap edges of 1.5" gallery wrap canvases and are sealed with a satin archival UV protective varnish. They are signed by the artist (sjh) and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Wired and ready to hang.
