Quarter Nocturne – Original Painting – $100

Quarter Nocturne – Original Painting – $100

An Original work of Art, a French Quarter street at night, created with acrylics and mixed media, signed by the Artist.

 

quarternocturn

 

  • Title: Quarter Nocturne
  • Size: 18″ x 14″
  • Media: Acrylic, Mixed Media, Satin Finish
  • Gallery Wrapped (NO FRAMING NECESSARY)
  • READY TO HANG

 

A French Quarter street at night, abandoned, windows shuttered and lit with pools of light flooding over the walls and cracked sidewalk. An arched entry way barred by cast iron taunts you with intriguing shadows, beckoning you beyond. The painting features French doors opening onto balconies with wrought iron railings. Two lanterns flicker on either side of the arched entry. “Quarter Nocturne” is great for just staring at. It pulls you in, makes you part of its somber mood. It’s great for contemplating life’s little problems.

“Quarter Nocturne” is an acrylic piece with a satin finish. It has been signed by me, Debbie Ainsworth, the artist. The title and date are printed on the back. When I first started painting, I always painted around the edges of my canvases because it bugged me not to. Today they call it “gallery wrapping.” So, “Quarter Nocturne” is gallery wrapped.
