SOLD to NC, USA. "Woman Blessing Candles", original painting,

painted in ink and acrylic paint on heavy weight, acid free water color paper,
size 18 x 24 inches (46cm x 61cm) .

Expressionist, abstract painting of a Jewish woman blessing the Shabbat candles with an aura of peace, in rich, vibrant tones of blue and purple and other colors.
The ink line drawing is spontaneous and raw and very expressive. The acrylic paint is bright and vibrant and gives the painting texture. The heavy weight paper shows through in many places providing additional texture and interest. This painting is on paper so you will have to have it framed (it is sold without a frame). You can get quite a different 'look' with different frames - see some examples below.
