This “Bellissima” Gold Leaf Framed Art is layered with pastels to give a sparkling sunlit effect.
Just like the original this “Bellissima” Gold Leaf Framed this new painting is hand painted with layers of pastel. I used the modern digital process and combined it with the traditional painting methods to reveal a new painting.
I first saw this voluptuous Orchid handing under a low canopy of an avocado tree. I was overtaken by its natural beauty and size that reached the height of 10 1/2″. The shade cast from the tree covered the plants and grass beneath it like a heavy blanket, muting all color to a dull tone. The one flower immune to this effect was this Cattleya Orchid radiating from under the tree like a morning sunrise. The Yellow was so bright I saw it from a block away and just kept walking towards it and just had to create a painting of nature’s beauty.
I created two of these “Bellissima” Gold Leaf Framed Paintings using heavy cotton high quality Acid Free paper, and layers of pastel. These were show pieces, for an exhibition at the Agora Gallery in New York City and the other on exhibit at Neiman Marcus Fort Lauderdale during their Trend Event and Artist Showing. No two are the same since I create each one separately.
