Sea Shore, Starry Night (Diptych)

This small diptych found a new home
at a Normandy Beach House in New Jersey, USA.


"Starry Starry Night..."

People just love to run their hands across
the surface of this tactile diptych!

(Small) Diptych of 6"x6" x 1-3/8"
each with profiled edges (15x15 x 2 1/2 cm)

I LOVE HOW THE DRAPING OF THE SILK REPRESENTS THE WAVES...
There is some sheet music incorporated in the moon (gloss gel).
Therefor it will be stored in my collage/painting gallery.

Art continues on the sides.
(Top, bottom and middle sides are painted in matte black.)
Finished with a gloss medium varnish (which is still workable after applying).
Doesn't need a frame.

Mixed media used:
caparol binder (resin binder glue), soft wood shavings (excelsior), crushed egg shells, silk, cheese cloth.
All worked in with different mediums to conserve the pieces.

Many shades of blue, raw and burnt umber, black, acra gold , acra orange, iridescent gold and silver, and some copper tones, yellow ocher in acrylics.
(All Liquitex and/or Golden.)
