A small acrylic painting on paper of someone taking a pendant out of a a box with trinkets and keepsakes.
I'm happy with how this turned out. I've had this idea for quite some time now and I just had to do something with it. My initial idea was for a landscape orientated composition with a lot more glittery and obviously fake, cheap trinkets strewn around out of which this hand would lift this obviously ancient rare, exquisite eggshaped phoenix pendant.* This picture might also still happen, who knows. Due to having just two hands and one hand having to hold a camera while taking a picture of the other hand, I decided to make it a more intimite and small affair. What you see here is a small old tin box and my own personal keepsakes and trinkets. Which explains the golden wooden shoes.
It turns out that the necessity of scaling it down gave this painting a different spin on things and it's now far more personal. So apart from horrible textured paper: yay!!
