ENCHANTMENT [n. great charm or fascination, captivation, enthrallment] is an evocative mixed media painting inspired by the interior of a Tithe Barn in Bradford-on-Avon, UK. This piece was started at Karen Rosasco's workshop and I think you will be amazed at how dramatically it changed as I worked on it. I finished it in my studio, all the while marveling at the magical process of creating.
I invite you to explore the evolution of ENCHANTMENT...
