A Copper Sun...

Sunday, 5 September 2010

Here are a couple of coppery canvasses that I've just finished...

 90 x 35 cm

Aeons ago before life had begun
Love existed 'neath a copper sun
Creation's explosion put time in motion
Now life exists 'neath a copper sun

 Both are done in acrylic, with copper powder dropped into the wet lettering. I used a glue gun to adhere copper leaf.... gorgeous shiny raised strands of light....

40 x 30 cm

Copper Sun whose tender rays bring forth the harvest
brings me comfort and warms my autumn years

For this one, the words 'copper sun', is metallic copper paint. The lettering on both is done with ruling pens... a folded one for the italic & a draughtsman's for the capitals.

They have been delivered to 'A Box of Delights' Gallery in Thirsk, North Yorkshire... just in time for a new Autumn display Bridget is planning. Hopefully, they won't remain there for too long!

I am partial to all things coppery...including my own hair color (by choice). It makes me feel happy, the warmth and sun shine quality of copper. Thanks so much for reading my recent posts, for your constant support. I do hope one day to make it over to your side of the pond and when I do, I will try and find you. I would love to sit for tea and talk heart to heart in person...and of course if you are ever here in the New England, you MUST come stay with us!!!
