Masquerade

Inspired by a trip to Venice, Italy and hours spent exploring the narrow twisting streets on foot, encountering intricately designed hand-made masks on display everywhere we trekked, learning their history, hearing stories and legends of masqueraded ghosts still haunting old Venice – “Masquerade” is infused with the bright colors of carnival. “Walk down an ancient narrow street, hearing the whispers of all those years and tears and fears hidden behind masks of glorious youth and vigor, their vibrant color, peacocks for a night of unrestrained delight.” My Zenworks express my love of pen and ink and a desire to create abstract imagery through spontaneous strokes and repetitive patterns. Zenworks emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.Pen and Ink on acid-free paper. Original 5"x7" artwork matted to fit an 8"x10" frame.

Price for this original Pen & Ink: $135 (with mat only), $155 (with mat and frame), plus taxes and shipping.
