Original Painting entitled 'Shades of Decay 02'

30 x 20" on box canvas

Plaster, acrylic and collage


This mixed media painting features 'Artex' plaster as the background which has then been painted to look decayed.  The lampshade has a 3D effect with the use of collage for the rose and fringe detail.


The inspiration for this painting came from items left behind in abandoned and derelict buildings.  Beauty in decay when nature takes over and creates new textures and colours.


This is one of two paintings that feature lampshades in a decaying setting.
