New House, New Dog
I started this painting thinking that I would go all "Watercolor like", but as I painted it, it became transformed into a mixed media sort of thing. I used paint, pencil, markers, pastels--everything but finger paints.
The trees, the sky, the flowers are all inspired by old cross stitch samplers from the 1800s. Living in Pennsylvania, I tend to be drawn to the whole pen and ink fraktur style as well.
No matter what, I am in love with ships. My heart is always drawn to the water. I love flowering fruit trees, too, which is what the folky stylized trees, front and center, are supposed to be depicting.
Love the bench and the big urn. In fact, I wish I owned a planter like that!!
The Bird's Eye frame on this is simply fabulous, the gold liner and the antique glass are all in great condition. This frame is very gorgeous. Very.
|The outside dimensions are 30" x 16 1/2" and looks great from a distance too. The colors really POP.|
