Artwork Description

"The Sanctuary" 24x48 in.

Like any person's life there are a multitude of influences that combine to make each person unique... such is Art

Over the years, during my extensive travels around the world, I have encountered many beautiful sights and creations of nature which always inspired me to depict on to the canvas. "The Sanctuary" this painting is one of the series of works from France to Italy to Canada with Love. I enjoy painting a variety of subjects from flowers, landscapes, European street scenes, abstracts to figurative work. My painting process uses drawing, acrylics, gold and silver leafing on a marble dust plaster to create an Old World essence through line, texture, colour and light. A painting can take anywhere from eight to 10 days for mixed media piece and up to seven weeks for an original larger painting.   View more our Contemporary artworks and Old Masters artworks
