Beautiful Dreamer with a song in your heart....
This painting was created by layering music manuscript, acrylic medium and inks onto a chunky canvas block. I sanded, added and worked into the surface until I had the leathery, worn surface that I was after. I included a snippet of song that gives the painting it's title. Hummingbirds fascinate me, they seem so exotic to an English person, so they are a motif that I keep returning to. The bright colours of my dreamer contrast with the sepia, aged tones of the background. The wings are painted in an iridescent green that shimmers subtly.
I have applied varnish to protect the painting and signed my initials on one side . The painting could be stood on a shelf or ledge or hung.
