beautiful piece, I like the different textures, layers, the interesting symbolic juxtaposition of objects. A well planned and executed work!

This one seems delicate while it also seems darker that the last several. Quite interesting. Your found objects give a 3 dimensional aspect to the piece, Would we see anything more if it were photographed showing some of the depth - or is all that subtle anyway?

Beautiful piece. To me it looks like it has an historic oriental feel to it.

Thank you for the comments and insights.

Dave, attached is a side view, it is quite dimensional overall.

With the addition of the side view I like it even more. I can see now the colours are much warmer. I love the texture underneath, is it created with alcohol?

Perfecto!....I like how you put so much thought into your work, even the background is very carefully done.

This is so delicate. Not an easy thing to do in 3d paintings. Your colours are beautiful.

Yes, the base coat is applied alcohol. After that it is just transparent layers of color.

Thank you for looking and commenting.
