Like the inverse of a sun in eclipse, this dark corona shines out of a golden disk, creating an image almost like a crown of thorns or a winter wreath.
The rich golden hues are hard to reproduce, but they make a striking contrast to the dark, opaque black.
This piece looks amazing in a dark, wide frame, contemporary and dramatic, a perfect painting for a spot that needs a statement.
Above, you can see the rich golden-yellow background, and the darkness of the black brushstrokes creating the strange halo. It’s been put in a beautiful frame below, striking and elegant.
