Happy Summer!

Mango Bloom

Patricia-DeLeon

36" x 36" | framed

Symbols of rebirth and enlightenment sprout forth from the pages of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass.  Acrylics + oils are layered intuitively on pages reproduced from an 1857 edition of this beloved book of poetry. Mixed media on Baltic birch with details in gold + silver leaf.    

The painting is finished with a UV protective varnish + hangs in a contemporary handcrafted wood frame.
