Hope is the Thing
W 70 x H 100 x 4,5cm
Artist pigments, ink, paper and pencil on canvas.
This beautifully vibrant painting has been built over many thin layers of paint and grew out of a slow process. It has been inspired Emily Dickinson’s beautiful poem ‘Hope is a thing with feathers’.
I enjoyed bold brush strokes and more detailed mark making in this piece. I mixed my own paint of forest green and orange yellow. Pencil lines add movement to the work. Finely dyed china paper stained with ink has been built up over layers adding depth to the painting.
The canvas has been painted around the edges in a complementary colour. Hooks and cord are attached at the back – the painting is ready for hanging.
The painting comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
A light satin varnish has been applied to protect it against sunlight, dust and other environmental factors.
