Artist's description:

The Giraffe and the Bumble Bee....

"One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood."
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

My friends have been painted directly onto a restored French map of Africa dated 1865. I have the original in my collection, it is badly damaged and very fragile so I scanned and digitally repaired it and have used this as the painting ground. The map has been printed on archival 300gm cotton paper, mounted on board and sealed and protected with acrylic medium and gesso. I then created my artwork using acrylic inks and paints being careful to allow the map to shine through as it is an integral part of the painting.
I have mounted the painting in a soft white textured mount that will fit a 14" x 11" frame.

Materials used:

Acrylic inks, paints and medium on a restored antique map
