Art: Siren Song by Artist Amanda Hone
The souls of sailors who chased the Siren are swirling in the blue depths of the ocean. I've always felt that to be lost at sea, unrecovered, is a lonely place for a soul to reside and wanted to portray that cold eternity. This piece was painted in several layers starting with a bright red undercoat. I wanted to allow small areas of the red to peek though the subsequent layers to give a hint of sunlight sparkling in the water. I also mixed sand into the paint and applied it with a palette knife to give a greater texture and depth. The piece is 20" x 20" on stretched canvas.
