Artist's Description

There is a great line in the Peter Gabriel song “Only Us” that goes “seduced by the noise, and the bright things that glisten”. With that in mind, I created this abstract landscape.

I used a liquid resist on the white paper before painting over it with deep browns and rich magentas. The resist goes on like rubber cement, protecting the paper from the paint. Wax paper was applied to the wet paint to create the patterns before I peeled off resist to reveal the clean paper underneath. Finally, gold accents were added to the piece, giving it highlights that glisten.

The rich earthy tones of “The Bright Things That Glisten” are a sure-fire way to add a warm and unique accent to any room of your home.
