Artist's description:

This Pointillism artwork is about another autumnal gift given by the Nature, and that we cannot imagine it could be one of these gifts: the acorn.
The acorn is effectively, and like the chestnut, an edible fruit with a high concentration of tannins and that is one of the reasons it is not very eaten nowadays. The other reasons are the time it takes to remove the shell and the necessary successive bakings to remove the tannins.
But cleared of all tannins, it is a great food that can be used in various types of recipes.
This artwork represented an average of about 31000 dots and is sold unframed so you can chose your own color for the frame and the mat.
Shipping fees can vary depending on the shipping company and destination.

***About Pointillism***
Technique of a great beauty and finesse, the Pointillism also requests some step back and above all some patience. This justifies the price of such a realization.
To give a better idea, let's take an average of 50 dots / cm² or 322,5 dots / in² (=6,45cm²).
Therefore, on an average size of 30x20cm (11,8x7,9'in) or 600cm² (93,2in²), this represents an average, in inches, of 93,2x322,5=30000 dots.
This may be one of the reasons why the Pointillism has fallen into a certain forgetfulness - we are actually in a society where (almost) everything must be done quickly, without step back. But this is perhaps why the Pointillism should deserve to be recognized at its right value, not only financial but also technical.
