Liberte! 8 x 10"

An image from the Eugene Delacroix 1830 painting Liberty Leading the People inspired this piece. Done on canvas prepared with gesso and cheesecloth and then painted and splattered with cobalt blue, cardinal red and creme acrylics.

Tiny fleur di lis brads dot the canvas and a large wooden one, painted with Golden's Iridescent Medium Gold Fine, anchors the lower left hand corner. I also used this colour in a few places in large globs for highlights. Two hand-dyed silk ribbons flutter from the top.

Available at Open Studios this coming October.
