Floating Gemstone Painting
Montana Agate and acrylic on wood panel
11″ x 13″
(artwork comes framed as wood panel is hand cut to fit the frame)
This piece germinated from two pieces of Montana agate that I cut which looked like smiling faces. I started moving around other pieces to form bodies for the faces. The kneeling man came first. What would a kneeling man be doing? Proposing to a woman perhaps? (well proposing something, he has a bouquet of flowers and not a ring lol). I experimented with a textured background painting with vibrant colors.
