Who says paintings are just for looking at? The petals are painted in such a way that invites you to touch them. Each Little Daisies painting features two colorful textured flowers on a striking multi-colored background. The rich dark blues of the blue series makes the opal-esque colors of the petals pop!
With this listing, you have a choice of purchasing the original painting, the print, or both as a discounted set!
The original painting is made from an upcycled 2 inch by 3 ½ inch business card. I can’t bear to see old business cards get thrown away, because I love the paper they’re printed on. I prime the front of the card with a professional grade gesso (thick opaque acrylic paint) before beginning your painting to give the paper structure and texture and seal it with a clear acrylic finish when I’m done. Due to the techniques I use, it is normal to have paint outside the boundary of the paper. You may leave it or trim it.
The print is approximately 4 inches by 6 inches and is printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper with a matte finish. The prints tend to be a little darker than the originals.
The original and print are not UV protected, so keep them out of direct sunlight to prevent fading and discoloration.
Good things come in small packages! So what do you do with a tiny piece of art?
– Use a glass floating frame as an alternative to traditional framing and matting.
– Mount them to a sheet of your favorite scrapbook paper before matting/framing. Or, mount them to a greeting card blank for a gift!
– Frame the card in a tiny frame used for wedding place settings (you may have to trim the card to get it to fit) or display it on a tiny easel.
– Purchase a custom mat to use a larger frame. Small art with wide mats in big frames will give your new artwork a classy gallery feel.
**Please note: any frames in the photos above are strictly for presentation purposes. The Yay for J logo watermark will not appear on the front of your artwork. Yay for J has become Sleeping Pond Studio.
I will not be making any more reproductions of the painting or print, so when these sell out, they’re gone forever!
