Title Still Needed: Green and Gold Multimedia

I have finished all the pieces for my art show on the 29th. More on that in tomorrow’s post. This pieces was one of the two that I made as an afterthought, and strangely enough it has risen through the ranks for become one my favorites.

IMG_1365The canvas was originally just kelly green. I had a ton of leftover green paint from another painting and I was loathe to just wash it away so I used it on this canvas. Later I realized that with the right application it could become the perfect backdrop for the green and gold shrine I had created on the left. To tie the canvas and the shrine together I added teal liquid acrylic and gold patterning to the canvas. I also added the dancing figures. I have been wanting to use the image of the dancing figures since I first came across the source material. The shapes, colors, and mood of the piece really evoked a sense of Irish Folklore for me and I felt the dancing woman captured that theme. All and all I’m very happy with the piece.

Here are some images of my process for those who are curious. And for me to refer to in the future. ^_^ And if you think you have a great title leave it in the comments! Thanks.
