"Cod in Blue" by Lily Dolin
Medium: Acrylic and Goache
Size: 19" x 8"
On a recent trip to the Morgan Library and Museum in New York City, I found myself enamoured with the red velvet wallpaper in JP Morgan's study. Lush and cozy, the wallpaper features soft Victorian-style paisley patterns, set against a blood red color. I love how the wallpaper gave the room a sense of grandeur and familiarity at the same time. When coming up with the idea for my cod, I decided I wanted to emulate the wallpaper in the study, but with colors that reminded me of the sea and of Marblehead.
