Preludio 3 (Part of a triptych)

(painting 3 of a triptych)

Found a new home in Greenville, DE.

PRELUDIO 1,2 and 3 is a triptych (MIXED MEDIA) in gold, copper and earth tones,
absolutely SMASHING to see LIFE!
(Unfortunately a picture can never show how it looks in reality)

I added cheese cloth, scraps of archival matte paper, sheet music and many (very thin) layers of gloss medium & varnish (which is still workable after it dries).
These layers softened the plies of the cheese cloth.
Each piece has a small piece of music showing “Prelude” of a vintage sheet music of BACH.
(Hover over it and you'll find it left middle.)
Each little Gem has a metal, yet a very soft look.

This triptych was part of my solo show “MY GEMS” at the Academy of Lifelong Learning (University of Delaware) where I teach art.
