Around the pond grows all kinds of wild flowers, summer blooms in the colors of the rainbow, dragonflies swirr and frogs harrumph, life slows down and thoughts of all kinds have time to form, around the pond life is both beautiful and good.
This is a textile linocut collage, on a gorgeous 100% vintage linen, marks and all, I have painted in acrylics to get my pond and the rocks, on top of that I havbe added the hand printed pieces of fabric for flowers and then I have freehand embroidered extensively all over the collage, with thread in mainly black, but also a touch of turquoise green, chosen to enhance the collage. I have fastened all the loose ends and added vlieseline to the back for support so the collage has a very finished look. It is signed in stitch on the front and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 25" x 17" ( 63 cm x 43 cm) I have intended for this collage to be framed behind glass to protect the textiles.
This collage arrives carefully wrapped, I roll it up in a mailing tube with tissue paper and a plastic sleeve. I can also add a personal hand written message of your choosing - just mail me your message and I add it to the package. Each painting/collage/print will also arrive with a free blank greeting card featuring one of my works making it easier for you to add a personal touch!
