Demons Will Charm You



This is the textured canvas piece I blogged about a few posts ago. Rob has done a great job of capturing the depth of the layers in the piece. I worked with acrylic paints and glazes, inks & textured gels (glass bead and sand), collaged on some shapes cut from Latin Bible pages and added some vintage green resistors. The title of the piece comes from a song lyric from Sweeney Todd and reflects the moods and emotions I went through whilst creating it.

The close-up shots show just how textured this piece is. Fantastic!

Wonderful photos of an intricate piece. You've really shown it well!

I feel both the charm - and the beckoning of the demons.

Thanks everyone. ;o) I think more textural pieces are definitely something I'd like to explore further. Difficult to convey online but fortunately I have an excellent photographer at my disposal. ;o)
