“Sirius” is a classically inspired creation depicting a beautiful star goddess with a soulful expression and shining eyes, holding a lantern (a symbol of hope and peace) in outer space. The sky frames her like a halo. Since ancient times and across multiple civilizations, Sirius, the dog star, has been surrounded with a mysterious lore. This constellation is shown in the upper right corner of the painting.

This is an original piece of artwork, hand painted by fantasy artist Susan Van Sant. The painting is rendered on portrait smooth linen canvas. It is 11″x14″ in size and the canvas is gallery wrapped, 3/4″ deep. It is ready to hang without a frame but is a standard size for easy framing if you choose to do so. Please consider adding this painting to your collection of fine artworks.

The watermark stamp is shown on internet images only to protect the artwork from being copied. The only writing you will find on this painting is the artist’s own signature in the bottom right corner in iridescent gold paint.

About Susan Van Sant

My name is Susan Van Sant, and I live in beautiful Grand Rapids, MI. I am a self-representing artist and have been creating and selling my artwork across the globe since 2007. Each painting has been carefully rendered on either stretched canvas or gessoed wood panel. I prefer acrylic paint, using a glazing technique with many layers that appear to “float” upon another which results in almost a dimensional quality with gorgeous depth of color. The edges are painted black, so the artwork can hang with or without a frame. Highest quality materials are used, ensuring my paintings will last many generations. My fine art prints are hand-pulled by me, the artist, ensuring the best possible likeliness of the originals. View all posts by Susan Van Sant
