This whimsical tree, Magnolia, is created by this accomplished artist using the ancient art of marbling, painting on the surface of water. Colours are first floated on to a gelatinous size. Combs and rakes are used to create designs by manipulating the colors. A sheet of paper is then laid onto the surface to transfer the pattern from water to paper! Thus, each work is unique.
The 100% acid-free heavy-weight cotton paper measures 18" x 24" and is framed in a textured metal frame. The framed work is available in gallery only (19 Ainslie St. N. Cambridge), or contact Cedar Lake for shipping arrangements and cost.
