Happy February !

Sonia | SOLD

Patricia-DeLeon

12” x 12” x 2.25” | mixed media on Baltic birch

Sonia is inspired by a dear Spanish friend who lived on an island close to me when I lived in the Pacific Northwest.  At that time I had few friends who lived nearby and she lovingly accompanied me as I prepared for my wedding and helped me shop for my wedding dress at the antique + vintage shops on our islands.  Today Sonia makes jewelry lives in Spain in an ancient house she is remodeling. My wedding dress that we found together was a 1920's red wine velvet evening gown that I still enjoy. x

 

“Our collective hunger for physical proximity and face to face interactions are deeply felt.  These days seeing a complete face is a luxury -and drawing them is a source of pleasure for me."

Expressively drawn faces- real and imagined- are rendered in acrylics + oils and layered intuitively with beloved book pages, antique illustrations of flora and fauna and timeless symbols of order and harmony. 

Mixed media on Baltic birch with gold leaf.   The painting is finished with black edges +  a UV protective varnish.
