Signed , sealed , delivered …


Radiant layers of color kept asking to be added to the painting after it rested for ten days and ten nights . The stars changed , and new energy came to the painting as if it had been waiting for its’ right time for completion . I had worked on this piece in a modern style , but used many old master’s techniques and materials …  I cooked my own gesso , and added marble dust to the bas relief mixture .  I used oils and tempera and  natural pwdered pigments .

Every detail started to shine  , the oils glowing with translucence

When she arrived  to my studio , and I led her in o see her completed work , I watched  the pupils of my clients”s eyes expand.
