Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic, Ink, Graphite and Charcoal on Paper and Other.

It is May and my brain was fixated on this rite of passage of every Catholic school child everywhere - the sacrament of First Holy Communion. I worked on this painting in multiple layers which obscure hidden secrets and symbols. It is mostly in oil over acrylic, with subtle gold leaf inlay, charcoal, graphite, ink and woodcut imprints.
