My "Poe"tic Crush...
My latest canvas offering is for one of my favourite Poe quotes from "Ligeia." I started out by layering black and brushed pewter acrylic and distress paints onto the canvas, then began mixing in other colours and inks, letting them dry and layering more colour to give the background depth. The edges are finished with Perfect Pearls powder from the metallic collection in pearl.
All artwork is my own with the exception of the stamp bordering along the top. I also used a vintage book page from one of Poe's narrative's to give a bit of an anchor to the piece, as to me a narrative is a stark contrast to a poem. But both are equal sides to Poe's diverse and creative nature.
