This painting is a contemplated original one of a kind, palette knife abstract lotus flower. Containing mixed media, acrylic paints, metallic pigments, and textures on gallery wrapped canvas. Inspiration are the ancient stories of the pink lotus flower's power and majesty in early spiritual beliefs. Photography gives little justice to the painting as a result of changing light conditions and metallic / iridescent paints. It is best is being seen and gently touched. The metallic pigments provide a unique sense of life giving movement through changing light conditions. There is little justice for the actual artwork through photography. Please see the video slide show for examples of changing light conditions. 53 X 65 X 1.5 cm - 21 X 25.5 X .5 In. Images in room view are for illustration purposes. My painting style is the use of altered brush strokes and the palette knife with modern materials to capture the effects of light on the subject, resembling the impressionist works by Monet and Renoir. The best artist grade materials are from trusted sources to assure quality protection and durability. The sides are painted and equipped with all necessary hardware to facilitate immediate hanging, without the need for special framing. The painting is shipped insured with a tracking number, securely insulated and packaged to accommodate conventional shipping conditions. An original signed Certificate of Authenticity accompanies the shipment. Questions and concerns are welcome.
