My first large painting to be completed in all pastel colors with the palette knife and brush. It was a superb Ohio Summer, and the Gladiolas were all upright looking towards the sky. . This original was purchased for a mother of some of my favorite friends. It was her 80th birthday party. She lives in Naples, Florida.
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.
