New Work: Archipelago

Archipelago

Archipelago 24" X 40" acrylic, oil sticks, ink, and charcoal on canvas




pale moon and fortune's rocks
the holy song of Terpsicore
and kiss of salt and wind


Well, everything is relative; these are cool colors for me!(Mixed Media Monday). I have never used pale colors in my paintings before, so this was quite challenging for me, especially on such a large scale.
