Dante's Daffodils, Original Mixed Media Art
How do you want people to feel when they enter your home? When you look at my art, I want you to feel optimistic and uplifted. This piece called Dantes Daffodils has the optimistic sunshine beaming from the painting. I love the yin yang of pairing an otherwise feminine painting with the masculine brown leather couch. Embrace both the masculine and feminine in your home for balance.
Inspiration for the Title
"I go to my studio every day, because one day I may go and the Angel will be there. What if I don’t go and the Angel came?"
I get that feeling sometimes when I paint. In other words, that the power is not mine. I think that is why sometimes I, we, get insecure with our work. Because we don't believe it is us who really created the art but some divine intervention. As a result, we worry we will never be able to invoke that muse again.
That is why I titled this painting Dante's Daffodils.
Dante conceives of the Muses as effective allegories of his poetic talent, a talent he perceives to be a gift of the Gods. He recognizes that his art is beyond his innate poetic talent and need divine inspiration.
Size: 18x24" art has 1-1/2" sides painted black.
Medium: Mixed Media, acrylic collage and watercolor on canvas
The gallery wrapped canvas is wired and ready to display on your wall without a frame. I've shown it here over a leather Pottery Barn couch but really, you can display the art anywhere that you desire a pop of color.
