Cycle of Days - Original Abstract Painting by Contemporary Texas Artist Filomena Booth

Cycle of Days
Acrylic on canvas

Have I mentioned before that I love to play around with texture and a variety of techniques?  I'm sure I have!

I started this painting by texturing the canvas heavily with gesso.  I slathered it on, leaving hills and valleys and allowed it to dry.  Many layers of thin glazes of transparent acrylic, iridescent gold, thin washes of gesso and runs of water all created depth and a moody patina.

Cycle of Days is currently available through Artfulhome.  Please contact me for more information.
