Redemption


36 x 36 - Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas - Private Collection -  (Kelowna, B.C.) 

The story behind the work:
Redemption - (salvation, deliverance, rescue, release, liberation, recovery) is an apt name for this painting which is the third on this particular canvas.   Formerly 'I Hung the Moon for You' followed by 'Blue Moon', the painting remained in the 'not quite right' bin until I had some left over mixed colour from another project and was in need of a canvas to do some experimentation on.  Out of the bin came 'Blue Moon' and 'Redemption' was created!  Rescued from the junk bin, released from old  pallets and liberated into a fresh new expression, this project was subsequently delivered to the owner of a complementary work 'Portholes' .
