Over riding a lot of bickering, a bit of jealousy, some petty meanness and more than a spoonful of irritation, your best friend, is your best friend, the person in the world, that cares more about you than anyone else. I celebrate that person, and the 2 of us, in this collage. Maybe the perfect gift for your mate, or to hang on your own wall, to put a smile on your face every day.
This is a textile collage, on a gorgeous 100% crisp white linen, the “canvas“ is quite textured, enhancing the hand printed fabrics. I have added different fabrics, all printed with my own linocuts, the hens are also printed by me, that is, all the patterns etc are made by me. I have freehand embroidered extensively, and fastened all the loose ends so the collage has a very finished look. It is signed and titled on the front and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 18" x 32" ( 46 cm x 82 cm)
I have intended for this collage to be framed behind glass to protect the textiles.
A very simple frame would look best, online you can order custom frames and try them out before purchasing if you don't have a framer handy.
This collage linocut 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 collage will also arrive with a free blank greeting card featuring one of my works making it easier for you to add a personal touch if you are giving it away as a gift.
