The Bambino

posted in: ABOUT THE ART | 0

For this piece, it all started with the frame.  It was love at first sight, and I immediately knew I wanted to do a mother and child piece.  It didn’t go quite the direction I had initially planned, but that often happens as I work.  It is a mix of acrylic, collaged papers, and the faces are done with oil.  I love the freedom that mixed media gives to just use whatever works best for a particular aspect of the art.

I discovered in the dictionary that bambino not only refers to baby, but specificaly to the Christ child.  It just seemed to fit the flavor of the piece and the frame.
