Artist's Description

Original artwork sold 2010

Influenced by Byzantine iconography, as well as art nouveau, and folk art, THE MESSENGER is a mixed media artwork on Canson paper. Mixed media includes liquid gold leaf, liquid copper leaf, oil pastels, woodless colored pencils, and marker.

In many mythologies world-wide, birds are seen as messengers of the gods. In this artwork, I have a hummingbird seemingly whispering in the female / madonna / goddess-like figure’s ear.
