Information about Cremation Ashes in Paintings
Many believe that art is the essence of life. Whether you are a connoisseur of the fine arts, dabble in a few different mediums yourself, or even have no particular interest in the field, you are constantly surrounded by art. Art is present in everything, from the design of the set of your favorite TV show, to the billboards you see on your drive home. With that said, it is particularly interesting that we now have a way to merge actual works of art, in the form of oil paintings, with the cremated remains of a loved one to create breathtaking remembrances that are as beautiful as they are discreet.
Art in Ashes offers a line of elegant oil paintings on canvas, in which an artist carefully combines the cremated remains of a loved one with the actual oil paint. The combined ashes and paint are then carefully added to the existing painting, adding not only the perfect final accent, but the essence of your dearly departed. The oil paintings are perfect for virtually any home, as the modern and abstract design of each piece is created using the finest of oil paints. The result is a stately work of art that has the very essence of a true masterpiece. One can get lost for hours in stark textures, converging and diverging brushstrokes, layers of contrasting and complimenting colors, and overall movement presented in the piece. These features are what make these paintings a stunning visual remembrance that will become as unforgettable as the people they memorialize.
Oil paintings are perhaps one of the oldest forms of fine art that man has ever created, and many are the most prominent pieces of art known by all, for example Leonardo da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa', or even Johannes Vermeer's 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'. This age old medium has survived the centuries when properly cared for, and in some cases, even when they are not. Take the story of the Van Gogh painting that was discovered in a garage sale, and was proven to be an original piece that was brought forth from the brush of the master artist himself. This painting, although heavily handled and not cared for in the same manner as its counterparts, which are housed in various museums, still survived through the decades well enough to be not only identified, but of great value. This alone is testament that an elegant Art in Ashes oil painting will survive the ages, and will become a treasured family heirloom, to be passed down from generation to generation for many years to come.
