Innocence - mixed media, textured, abstract painting

My first painting in about 5 months!!! YAY!!

TITLE: - Innocence
MEDIA:- mixed media - Heavily textured using flax mat, garnet gel, modelling paste and acrylic paint
SIZE:- 91cm x 61cm

NOT FOR SALE:- This was done as a very special commission for one of my closest and dearest friends. She has always been there for me through good and bad times. Thank you!! (although she does tell me I'm one of the most naive people she's ever met ;) lol)

SYMBOLISM:- The colours symbolise innocence - green as in fresh/new- white as in purity - black is the innocence gone - gold the preciousness of innocence.

This was completed for the NZ Art Guild's fortnightly theme challenge where members are given a subject to paint to and technique to include. This weeks challenge was "Innocence"and the technique was dry brushing. This whole piece (apart from the metallic gold circles) are all done by dry brushing.

Check out the NZ Art Guild website to see the winners on Wednesday
