This commission was given the beautiful title of ´Beat of My Heart’ by my Irish client. She was inspired by the Irish saying ´A chuisle mo chroí” meaning “the blood beating in my heart”. This speaks of those who are nearest and dearest to her and so in keeping with that theme, we wove little elements into the composition that represent each person. The overall scene was inspired by her travels in Germany.
This mixed media dreamscape features collage, impasto paint as well as 24 karat gold leaf and copper highlights.
