"Floating Books are magical additions to any home, office, or library! With the edges of the canvas painted as pages and spine, each painting is designed to appear as a book floating on your wall. Floating Book Commissions are welcomed, simply click the commission this Artist" button and describe the book you envision. 'Existence' is a visually textured 'brown' book, but I used many colors to make that brown and in some areas they be more notable, giving the overall brown a natural undertone of color marbling. The hardware is two kinds of iridescent copper, one leaning far into the red tones, the other into the gold tones, both are quite reflective. The symbol 'stamped' into the bookface is of my own design, symbolizing the balance of alliances. Inside the symbol are Yswyuh runes [also of my own invention] which explain that a lifetime could be spent contemplating the meaning of life, and that it more than mere 'we are here;' it is all that is entangled within the multiverse, as relative to our senses. They are painted with an iridescent blue for a complimentary contrast to the overall 'book' and possibly one of my favorites so far!" -M.E.
"Aloha! My name is Mandy Elliott and I'm a self-taught Artist originally from the Space Coast of Florida and now residing in the Heart of Virginia. Creating isn't just a passion for me, it's a part of me. I come from a background of artists, musicians, mechanics, engineers, and carpenters. One thing we all have in common is an ability to imagine something and then make it real. Some of us also share the ability to understand what others imagine and make that real. We are inventors and innovators. It's those skills which got me through a troubled home, and gave me success in the corporate world from Sales to Escalations Management. None of that fulfilled me though, and I had to ask myself why I limiting myself when I could unleash myself into something I love? Art. I'd been creating and selling my Art since 1998, but in 2010 I dove in to the part of me that creates from the inside. I've showcased in Melbourne Florida, Orlando Florida, Historic Kissimmee Florida, Cincinnati Ohio, and since September 2016 I have Artwork in an Earth Art collection in Space, courtesy of NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission to the asteroid Bennu. #WeTheExplorers ... I watched NASA launch shuttles from the Cape, viewed from my back yard as a kid, and now I have Art in Space. I'd say my life is complete but... creating Art isn't something I can just turn off anymore. I am an Artist." -M.E. ______________________ _______________________ [[ All artworks protectively sealed, ready to hang, professionally shipped with a certificate of authenticity (CoA), Artist Pamphlet, "Talking About Art is Hard..." greeting card to give insight and talking points about your specific painting(s), and a hand written note from the Artist.
