As the world turns

Dedicated to my friend Annemieke,
who's world turned for the better.

In the series "LIGHT" this is my 3rd one (part of a diptych):
"As the world turns"

Mixed media with lots of texture.
Part of a diptych (tweeluik)

Unfortunately the gold and copper tones are not that obvious in this photo.
The iridescent gold gives it a nice waxy shine.
I incorporated some sand in this abstract as a contrast to the semi gloss glow.

Some info about the colors I used:
In nature the blue-green turquoise lapis-lazuli forms when there is copper present.
Therefore this combination is so rich and gives these copper/gold tones an extra enhancement!
Result: a conjugation of complimentary colors.

During the day , when the light is changing, this piece will look totally different than at night with artificial light.(2nd picture)
