Trio: Opulent Ocean Tones

48×48 inches, acrylic, gold and silver leaf on canvas

The intimate elegance of chamber music is expressed by these “painterly” instruments, lit by two crystal chandeliers. The under-painting (ground) contains gold leaf squares over-painted with deep warm grays, blues, and yellows. A collector once said, “Stilton paintings play big.”  This one really does, and it has a dramatic impact that makes one think of European baroque art, even though it is thoroughly contemporary. Sapphire blues, emerald greens, gold, amber, and gold leaf with incarnadine strokes created a powerful evocation of the trio in an apotheosis of chamber music!
