The Magic

Painted in a loose gestural technique - the seeming ease is very hard to accomplish and demonstrates skill and experience. This approach is inspired by millennia old Chinese brush painting and calligraphy.

The Story

My first encounter with Cosmos Bipinnatus was about the age of 9, running around the streets in my hometown with friends, playing hide and seek and occasionally plucking overgrown flowers and apples from neighbors' tiny urban gardens. Back in the day cosmos color palette was limited to white, pink and magenta, but the new contemporary varieties inspire me just as much - hence the soft blush coloration.

Make It Yours

This is an original painting - 1 of 1 - not a print. Signed by the artist.

The painting measures roughly 4" x 6" (10 x 15 cm) and will be mailed sealed in a cello sleeve (for moisture protection) with padding in a rigid envelope. Please note that size may vary within 1/4 inch due to the handmade nature of the paper.

All artwork ships from Massachusetts, USA within 2 business days. Delivery time varies depending on the destination.

Frame is not included. Storing in direct sunlight is not recommended (like any original artwork).

Framing suggestion

Deckle edge adds unique rustic charm to the artwork. You can put the painting in a larger frame with a sheet of color paper underneath thus highlighting the unique edge, or frame to size for a crisp look.
