Artist's description:

Acrylic color on handmade Thai mulberry paper (kada sa), deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 80 cm.
This one was done done some time ago!
I love this orchid. It’s a dainty little plant with long flower spikes filled with lasting tiny flowers. … once apon a time growing in my garden.
Here I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It’s a thick parchment type paper, strong yet pliable. I have the paper made to this size to get the deckled edges which adds to the textural effect.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting. Then there’s the photoshoot.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a garden or nature scene, a storyboard collage from a recent travel? Contact me.
When considering framing bear in mind to not cover up the deckled edges. This is one of the specialties of the painting, one of its charms. It is best displayed framed with a cut mat board around the painting so as not to cover the edges, thereby putting some space between the art and the glass and bringing depth to the framed art. It can also be framed simply with backing board and pressed with glass over the front without causing damage.
