Contemporary Madonna Icon in Gold Red Blue

Shadow of Love



“What are Raphael's Madonnas but the shadow of a mother's love, fixed in permanent outline forever?”

~ Thomas Wentworth Higginson

Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 12 X 16 in
30 X 40 cm

This slightly abstract painting is heavily textured and embellished with gold metallics. But I've tried to keep the feel of my more traditional icons by using jewel tones for the blues and reds.

I'm busy, busy getting myself ready for the By Hand gift show in Toronto in two weeks. While my ever loyal husband deals with the display, stock and insurance and countless other details, I'm still painting, painting, painting!
