Glory - Collage Oil Painting 16x20"
The word "glory" can mean honor, magnificance, distinction, worship or a part of the divine. I have to admit when I named this piece I did it intuitively but now I see how perfectly it captures the essence of this painting. The open hands, receiving or offering (depending on your perspecitve) a flow of glory and the gold distinctive marks all celebrate what is happening here in this moment. "Glory" gives us a glimpse into the unseen, and that is the real treasure.
This is a mixed media piece which includes gallery wrapped canvas (16x20x1.5"), oil paint metallic oil paint, cold-pressed water color paper, graphite, gel medium, and varnish. This collage painting helps express the layers, textures and varying elements that come together to tell the story with more depth, richness and interest than paint and canvas alone.
The painting comes unframed unless you purchase a framing option but is painted on all sides if you choose to display it unframed. The frame adds about 1 inch on all sides.
Paintings usually ship within 1-2 weeks unframed, 2-3 if you choose the framing option. Shipping costs are included (approx. $70 value) and additional shipping costs of the framed are wrapped into that price.

H A N D S
There is a moment when an ordinary gesture or a common movement becomes something more. When a hand is offered and received, when palms open in surrender, or a fist loosens—then these everyday movements become holy. They become more than they were.
Certain positions can represent something greater and deeper than the eye can distinguish. These are the moments that I have attempted to capture in this series. The position of the hands may be common, but the meaning and motivation behind them is hallowed. The ordinary transcends into the sacred, but so quickly it is easily missed. Hopefully these pieces recognize and mark these hidden, holy moments.
