a hat box in the closet. a shoe box under the bed. filled with a winding stroll down memory lane...

this original painting is the ideal addition to a mantle, side table, desk, or shelf. it also has a hanging wire for immediate wall display. this textural, mixed media painting is done on a piece of reclaimed antique wood. i buy all of my wood from a local furniture maker, and am never sure what he is going to sell me, which adds to the inspiration. the application of the materials give this painting a nice vintage tone, and the aged wood itself is absolutely gorgeous. overall the piece has a lot of texture. materials include ephemera: an old postage stamp. maps, wallpaper, and antique letters. the bird and the budding twig are mixed media paintings on vellum. The collage painting is sealed with shellac so you can hold it. to preserve the antique materials, i recommend getting the art situated quickly (to avoid excessive handling) in a cool space out of direct sunlight.

unlike a lot of artwork offered today, my work is done by hand from start to finish. the materials are applied layer by layer and then allowed to dry before the next application. this gives the paintings a great amount of depth and detail. top of this painting is faded blue paint. the rest of the sides is the natural grain of the wood.

size is approximately 9.5" in width, and 10" in height. the painting is about 1.5" in depth. all of my paintings can be handled. they look great on their own, or buy a bunch and display them together (please note: only the collage painting is available in this listing)!

a soft vintage style piece. perfect for a country home, and the ideal gift for an antique and/or nature lover.
