"Blue Heron Requiem" By Marilyn Wells Original Oil Painting
This painting was inspired by:
"...it floats down
like an armful of blue flowers, a bundle of light
coming to refresh itself in the black water...
-M.Oliver - Circles (Blue Heron) 2207OC
I've been exploring a technique new to me but that's been around for hundreds of years - cold wax. I have always loved the icons of the Middle East and the Orthodox churches in particular, and wanted to introduce more of the rich and broken textures that appear in those icons after a few hundred years of wear and weathering. I am delighted to say I am achieving the results I want, as in this painting, larger than my earlier ones.
This painting is about luxuriating in the beauty of nature and art as they come together in a richly textured surface.
The subject matter is mystical and romantic, which appeals to me in many ways.
This oil paintings is a unique art work on 4x primed, heavy canvas. It comes with its own Certificate of Authentication.
30" x 40"
