I have always admired the sculptural beauty of trees. Just lie down in your yard and look at their design against the blue sky. Now you can see how I was inspired. Everyday when I walk among the trees, a different image does appear from many angles. This was my favorite on a Monday( my least favorite day!). I really enjoy painting trees, they represent a life. They are a large apart of my life in Ohio in the summers. My yard must have over 200 trees, all with their own features.
Original piece: India ink with pen and acrylic ink applied by brush on 500lb cold-pressed paper.
Purchased print is a limited-edition, professional glicée print, rendered on high-quality archival matte paper. The glicée print realistically displays the textures associated with pen and ink art. The standard print includes a sizable white border surrounding the artwork (as displayed in the image above). Matted pieces are prepared with one inch of matting on the top, left, and right, with two inches of matting at the bottom. Approximately 1/8” of the white border remains along the matte’s edge on the top, left and right. The title of the artwork and Sallie’s signature are visible along the bottom of the print.
