Magnolia in Blue
Piece description from the artist
Giclee fine art watercolor rag, mounted on 1/2" gator board, limited edition 4/250 signed on front & back. Archival up to 200 years, 4 coats of UV varnish, no glass necessary, comes w/a beautiful dark 3" beveled wooden frame 2''deep. "
Magnolia combined w/photo of an etched, Asian bronze door as its background. Doing so, I felt an urge to unify them in color; since the time I was an art student, I always loved China blue.
There is a faint pattern of the bronze etching, delicately superimposed on the petals, as if it were a textile silk flower. Gorgeous mood!
