($40.00....6" x 6"......mounted on a 1.50" clayboard panel)
"Prayer is a condition of purity." Communicating with God is a reflective and purifying process. It is a place of refuge and peace. Visually, it is best communicated with a lot of white.
Yesterday was black and ink. Today is white and purity. This piece satisfies my desire to create a piece in whites and muted grays. Tone on tone can sometimes be weak depending on what the surroundings are. This would be a stunning piece on a mid to dark gray wall. It would, of course, disappear on a white wall.
Another way to handle this type of tone on tone technique would be to introduce several different textures. It would not be interesting if it were simply painted one color. It is very important to have some intrigue in the piece by have some subtle value changes without going too far from the white end of the gray scale. In addition, the attention to shapes and designing the corners still needs to be a strong consideration. Just a few more things to think about.
Please contact me personally to inquire about this piece.
