Cromwell

12" x 12" x 7/8” Cradled board - Cromwell is set in teals and rich berry colors. Subtly peeking through the mixed media layers, the hymn “Oh Come All Ye Faithfull” can be seen. As with all of ridgely’s Christmas based paintings, Cromwell is easily used as a year round blessing in your home- not just at Christmas. ***CLICK on photo to see additional views!***

Cromwell is painted with mixed media on a 12” x 12" x7/8” cradled board. Piece comes ready to hang with sturdy sawtooth hanger attached. Painted with Artist grade acrylic paint, Cromwell has embossed and other delightful papers affixed under the painted surface. Prior to painting, I applied one coat of Country Living Caramal Colours Chipping Creme prep paint which allowed me to sand the surface paint without exposing the board. The painting was crackled with JoSonja Crackle Medium, followed by acrylic antiquing. After the antiquing, I painted an additional layer of paint over the crackle in some areas. This adds To the aged, Primitive look! 
 
Three coats of Liquitex Professional water based varnish were then applied followed by a coating of Doraland Wax.  This is an original painting, signed and dated with ‘0’ next to artist's name. A Certificate of Authenticity confirms you own the original painting! Keep her out of direct sunlight and you will enjoy her for many years.
