Three Day Weekend

Three Day Weekend

Last summer, I invited my best friend to visit my art studio cabin on Lake Superior. She had never seen this Great Lake! She spent many happy hours over a three day weekend watching the waves and finding treasures ... stones! Afterward, she inspired me to "document" our Three Day Weekend.

NEW technique for my art: Color Pencil Drawing produced on an ICARUS heated drawing board. (Look up the artist Ester Roi, she invented it!) Basically, the glass-like tabletop surface has a cool area and a warm area -- you can control the heat level. It is wonderful for blending the wax-based color pencil for soft layers. Look closely; you will see that I intentionally did not blend the shadow areas.

This piece on archival paper is only 7"x 9" but it is matted and sleeved to be 11"x 14" overall. Ready for your standard framing; I recommend a UV protection glazing.

My price includes USPS or UPS shipping to USA only.
I am sorry that I do not do international shipping.
