Tower of Piety - Sold
Painted about a year ago, this piece was inspired by a small carved wooden statue located in the Louvre. The carving dates from the 1500s if my memory is correct and has a painted surface which is in remarkably good condition. I was so taken by the beauty of the piece, the serenity of the faces and their rapt attention to the task at hand. The little carving begged to be painted! It is titled Tower of Piety and remains one of my favorites - 18x 24 oil on canvas.
Merry Christmas to all who stop by my blog and linger for a moment or two - I hope your year is filled with joy. love, peace and original artwork!
