Wisdom # 9

TITLE: Wisdom #9
MATERIALS: Acrylic and resin on canvas
SIZE: 10cm x 10cm x 3.5cm (Nice size to sit on a shelf)
I seem to be having a bit of a theme this and gold..... lol
Painted in red with black writing. The borders are metallic gold and the whole canvas is covered with giving it a really glassy effect.
The words read "A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds " - F Bacon
I really like this covers a lot with such a simple phrase. My son and I had a great discussion about this!

It's a shame that the resin finish isn't easily captured on the photo, after seeing your work in person, I was very impressed with the smooth glass-like finish that these resin works have.

Hi Moira. Always lovely to hear from you! Thanks so much!! Yes its very difficult to capture the finish of them. I always toss up to photograph them prior to the resin so that you can see the painting clearly....or risk it after the resin with the reflections and falshbacks. Only wish I could capture the true look....all I can say is they are better in the flesh! lol
