Cloisonne Knock-Off Vase

This little artwork (measures 8 by 8 inches) uses many types of acrylic inks, gels and paint to recreate the "feel" of the ancient art of Cloisonne. I call it a "knock-off" as it plays with this traditional art by using an abstract approach.
Here is a close-up of the texture and colors. The glow of the acrylic inks on the black of the vase-shapes is unexpected.
If you live in the Roanoke, VA area you can see other paintings in this series on display this Saturday (July 12, 2014) at Ikenberry Orchards in Daleville. The Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge will set up an art show on the porch from 9 AM until nearly 3 PM. A portion of the proceeds from the art sales will benefit the Lord Botetourt High School FFA. We will be painting as well that day so plan to stop by to see us.
And it is peach season and we can't wait to get some of the delicious home-grown peaches too.
