Small Wonders #5 Size: 13 1/8" x 11 1/8" Color Scheme: green, blue Medium: acrylic, shells, glass "pebbles", raffia Price: $45 COA#: DSG1113SW5
This is one of my "Small Wonders" series. I take small remnants of canvas and paint them with "extra" paint -- whatever is left on my palette when I've finished a larger piece. In Small Wonders #5, I arranged a remnant piece on a black background and hung sea shells with raffia from the top of the piece, and added shells and glass "pebbles" at the bottom. The hanging shells move. I collected the shells on beaches all over the southeastern seaboard. Of course, it is almost impossible to photograph due to the glare from the glass. Small Wonders #5 is in a whitewashed wooden shadowbox frame. Painting is signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that includes the COA number, title, date and my signature.
