Bright leaves of metallic gold on turquoise branches swirl around a full moon. The night sky is in shades of orange and magenta, deepening to a rich purple. Some of the leaves are dancing in the air. This feng shui piece, part of the Zen Moonlight modern art series (botanical abstract landscapes in a contemporary Asian style), is an original acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas (the 3/4" staple-free sides are finished off in purple acrylic) and can be hung with just a nailno need to frame. It has been varnished with a light spray to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors.
This is a new palette. I like the turquoise and gold metallic against the rich purple. Metallics are new for me, having come from oil paint. It's one thing I am enjoying about acrylics.
It is hard to convey the richness of the purple with a digital photo.
I watched a documentary on Frida Kahlo tonight. Very inspiring.
