The Wonder of It All
'The Wonder of It All', completed December 11th, 2019
This little sweetheart measures a rather random 20.75cm x 9.1cm and may, therefore, require a handmade frame. It started out life as a piece to tear up and collage with, but at some point, I realised that was definitely NOT happening! Because I was intending to tear-and-paste, it's on a lighter weight paper than I would ordinarily use, which has led to some buckling and rippling. I know that some collectors would see this as an 'issue', but I absolutely love it - it makes the piece even more unique and unrepeatable, to my mind. I guess I may press it a little bit before releasing it into the wild, but I think this brush baby is 'perfectly imperfect'. What do you think - are ripples and buckling a 'problem', or do they add to the character of original artwork for you?
'The Wonder of It All's organically flowing lines and curves are infused and inspired by the artist's deep love of nature and the natural world. Paint and painter take turns leading the way in a genuinely unrepeatable, co-creative process. The work evolves in a dynamic dance between artist and media, inviting the viewer to look beneath the surface and discover hidden details and deeper meaning. The nuances of the completed piece change and shift with the light, imbuing this original mixed media artwork with an interactive 'aliveness' that a print (no matter how faithful or lovely) can simply never hope to replicate.
'The Wonder of It All' ships unframed, signed and dated on the back with a certificate of authenticity. (Please contact me if you would like 'The Wonder of It All' signed on the front, or shipped with a separately signed mount-paper or matt - I will be happy to oblige).

"I absolutely adore creating these little minis - they are just so much fun to work on. And although they are small, just as much time and love go into painting them as does into my larger works.
This unique 'bookmark orientation' mixed media creation is as gorgeous as it is diminutive - won't take up much room on the wall, but it has a huge personality! Its small size makes it ideal for placing on a shelf, table or dresser, and it also looks great in a collection of other mini paintings such as 'Circling', 'Strands In A Web' or 'Bubbling Under': perfect for gifting, for smaller spaces, or for those seeking affordable original art suited to an evolving collection over time." - Jay
