my gold feather -by arike 4/100

Mixed media (watercolour pencils, oil pastels and gold acrylic paint) on sugar paper A4 size. The gold reflects in this photograph, as well as the paper.. The background is actually black but is giving me more grey hairs in the struggle to photograph it. Whatever, it's a rework of the initial work which was really minimal - maybe too minimal LOL. Thanks for looking..e^)

rain in africa

This is acrylic on stretched canvas, 255 x 255 x 35mm or 10" square. I have experimented with a textured surface before I started painting and am quite pleased with the outcome. It is available for sale on trademe Have you heard of the Rain Queen of Africa? Fascinating.. "The Rain Queen's mystical rain making powers are reinforced by the beautiful garden which surrounds her royal compound. Surrounded by parched land, her garden contains the world's largest cycad trees which are in abundance under a spectacular rain belt. One species of cycad, the Modjadji cycad, is named after the Rain Queen." Thanks for visiting my blog ..e^) PS If you're interested in a print of this work please have a look at redbubble e^)
