black velvet

You might remember this one, especially because of the intricate piece the ‘Arc De Triomphe’ in the middle. It’s been sitting around for awhile now and I picked it up again this morning, having been suddenly struck with what to do next. See, the center is of course the center, it needs to be noticed. I found a hefty U shaped piece of metal, painted, lacquered, star-dusted, bejewelled and tightly wound it with copper wire. It glows!

The rest of the painting at that time was chaotic and it completely lacked vision . So, I took some black and dulled the whole piece, turned it way down, and being careful so as to not splash my wall jewelry. I left a handful of painted areas still visible. Not sure what kind of effect I was going for but once it dried, I took a fine gold point and started adding some lines.Image
