“Swamp Riot.” I love frogs, amphibians that help us maintain oxygen levels of water by eating algae blooms. I love their eyes, their color and their croaks that enliven still summer evenings. They are dear to me, because my triplet sons brought frogs into our home when they were four years old .I found one sitting in one of my best Lalique candy dishes, and another in my priceless Languedoc bowl. Master glassmaker Rene Lalique never conceived of a frog in his work, so my sons did it just for me. And I LOVED IT.
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.
