The title comes from a line in the poem "Glinton Spire" by John Clare. It struck me that the abstract looks like church bells sound when they ring out. The deep red and brighter red in the center is flecked with gold and the abstract sound waves move out into purple and blues, then pale opalescent green. While a small painting, is it nonetheless intricate and detailed. I can see it in a hallway, near a doorway, or grouped with several other works, anywhere a spot of brilliant color is needed to brightened a view. This is painted in encaustic (beeswax strengthened with damar resin), oil stick, and powdered metallic pigments. It is painted on a 2-inch deep hardwood cradled panel, and does not require framing, in fact, look best unframed. Signed, dated, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
