The curved bright pops in this piece are symbolic of the flumes - man-made structures designed to transport water. Here, in the Feather River Canyon of Northern California, water is the great Alchemist. Life springs from it, as does resilience to wildfire. Wildfire presents one of the greatest natural threats to those living in these realms, as evidenced by the Camp Fire that burned Paradise, CA to the ground in late 2018. Paradise was my canyon-laden home, now lost.
The original was painted with acrylic, gouache, watercolor, charcoal, and pencil on linen (pictured in last listing image).
- This is an archival print of the original painting. - Each print is signed on the front. - Frame and mat are NOT included. - All prints are produced with professional art materials including pigment-based inks and archival Somerset Velvet fine art paper. -In order to keep your print in great condition it is important to frame with archival materials (mats, backing board, etc.), keep out of direct sunlight, and UV glass if you really want to go all-out!
- Paper is larger than the listed size, as there is a ~1.25" white border around the actual image to enable easier matting, or float mounting to display the deckled edges of the paper. - Image itself is shrunk down ~1/4" from size listed to expose signature line when matted or framed in the corresponding standard sized mat/frame.
