The Middle Way is an original mixed media painting being released as part of the 25 Days of Minis for 2019.
I love the peacefulness of watching fish glide through the water. Their effortless movement that hypnotizes the viewer. For this piece I chose to highlight the connection to the golden ratio, sometimes referred to as the golden mean, and play a bit with the non-mathematical golden mean of following neither extreme, but practicing moderation and finding the middle way.
Created on a 10″x10″ wood panel, this one of a kind artwork was handmade by Alecia Miller through a process of layering old book pages in the background and utilizing the transparency of the paints to achieve the light and airy feel of the final painting.
The artwork has been sealed with a protective varnish and is mounted in a black wood frame, ready to display in your home.
