Protea- 8” x 8” Original Acrylic Painting
This original Protea painting is a part of my Beauty For Ashes series, which is a reflection of the redemption we receive in Christ.
Each painting begins with a bottom layer of texture medium and black paint, mimicking a rough beginning or pile of ashes. On top of this dark, rough surface, layers of vibrant color bring forth the beauty of a flower. Once the flower is painted, it is completed with gold paint and gloss varnish.
Texture is still seen through the beauty of the paint as both a reminder of the rough beginning, but also an expression of hope and grace of a new beginning!
Acrylic paint, on a cradled wood panel. 8” x 8”. Finished with gloss varnish and ready to hang.
