Music is love in search of a word: Cello’s, violins, bass’ guitars, mandolins, once alive in the forest as trees, became wondrous instruments of music, damaged and broken losing their spirit, they now sweetly sing with angel and goddess voices.
Denise paints on antique and historic wood panels from New England houses, ships and furniture, lovingly used in everyday life. Each panel is catalogued on the reverse side so that the history is recorded and the article does not go unlamented. The original patina is retained, but the panel takes on a new life form to provide present and future generations with joyful exuberance and enthusiasm. Musical instruments of the past – silenced forever when broken, sing again with pure voices visually. The angel’s wings shimmer with particles of amethyst, emerald, and mica. Guild and Instant Ancestor Portraits are likenesses of those you cherish in period costume, depicting profession, expression, or just a grand escape to a more gracious and flamboyant era. Commissions are painted from a photo on your heirloom panel or one from the Limner’s vast collection of stilled stringed instruments and antique wood.
