Iris Bliss ORIGINAL OIL

Price: $4,500.00

Size: 30" x 40" x 1.5"D

ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING

In Greek mythology, the goddess Iris uses the rainbow bridge to guide women to heaven! Iris flowers represent Iris' rainbow robes flowing in radiant colors, bringing bliss to the women on earth.

Colors harmonize in a rainbow of iris with shimmering copper under-painting peeking through sparkling water.

I wish I could tell you that I knew this BEFORE I painted these beautiful iris ~ but I did not! Rather I painted them first, then discovered the Greek myth and the meaning of my painting's message. It feels divinely guided to me, especially in light of my healing colors palette! The Creator never ceases to amaze me!

About my Healing Palette

I work with a 6-color spectral palette that aligns with the chakras. Spectral colors of the rainbow tune these energy centers, balancing alternating wavelengths of color with jewel tones and pastel shades.

Charvin Artists Oil Colors

I love to paint on medium-value, color-toned canvas, reminiscent of my favorite pastel papers. Dark and light, warm and cool ~ balance in each painting from the start. Metallic pigmented under-painting amplifies radiance and reflects Light back on the viewer like a mirror.

Feelings and emotions inspire my paintings. It might be the marriage of a child, or the birth of a grandchild, or memory of a parent. The joy of life infused with my passion for living, in good times and through trials, heals the heart in each and every painting.

Hanging Your Art
All my canvases are wired and ready to hang. To help keep your painting level, I recommend hanging your painting from two picture hanging hooks spaced apart on the wall.

Shipping Your Art
Please allow a day or two for us to prepare your painting for shipment. A final coat of satin varnish is applied. Then your painting is carefully crated for safe shipment to your doorstep. We are happy to ship paintings overseas rolled. Keep in mind, your country may have VAT or other import duties for you shipment. We cannot control these! Contact us for details.


Framing

My oil paintings are offered both framed and unframed.  We are happy to help you find the perfect frame for your new painting. The larger paintings, which are done on 1-1/2" canvas, are best framed in floater frames, or left to hang unframed on the wall. 

gold floater frameFloater frames are designed to cradle deep canvases. A small gap around the painting, allows the canvas to "float" in the frame. Floater frames can be made in a variety of finishes, including gold, silver, black, white, and in any type of hardwood and stain finish. I am partial to the gold and black shown here. However, your decor may require a special touch, which we are happy to recommend. Contact us 


In the Best Light
DAYLIGHT   Your painting will look different depending on the changing quality of the surrounding light. Natural ambient light will create a nice feel for your painting during daylight hours, as the colors subtly change throughout the day.

AT NIGHT   Art galleries use warm or cool-toned spot lighting to accentuate the colors in the painting, and they usually intensify the light on the painting's center of attention. You can imitate this effect in your own home by installing halogen or LED directional spot lighting in the ceiling above your painting. These lights are surprisingly inexpensive to install. An electrician can install them in a few hours. If you wish you can purchase the fixtures and bulbs yourself online. 

Use the Right Bulbs
The wrong color bulb can cause your painting to look "muddy." Use cool lighting to illuminate a painting that has predominately cool colors, and use warm lighting on a painting with mostly warm colors. 

Many homes are already fitted with recessed ceiling fixtures. These can be adapted to directional spot lighting by a handyman. Even without direct lighting on your painting, your artwork will still look good with nearby incandescent lighting. 

Enjoy!
