Artist's description:

This is definitely not your average abstract painting! I was going to do a painting on stretched canvas but noticed that the canvas had woefully rippled from it's stretcher. So, I cut it out and realized how lovely the raw side of the canvas was. Then I thought, hmmm, I wonder how coloured pencil would lay down on it? So, that was the inception and then oil pastel was used to add more oomph to it. It reminds me of coral, so colourful and undulous in movement and so very busy with life!

The painting has to dry a bit (the oil pastel will dry out so it is not as tacky). It will be shipped in a protective cut out drop frame so the surface does not come in contact with any surface. Will be shipped as package. Note also that the image size is not perfectly square but is roughly 12 5/8" x 17" (32 cm x 43.18 cm).
