Scottish Thistle
The Official Emblem of Scotland

Legend has it, that in the 9th century when the Norse were often raiding Scotland, a group of Vikings tried to sneak up on a group of sleeping Clansmen. They had removed their shoes to creep quietly but stepped on thistles and cried out in pain. The alerted Scots made them pay.

This story is on the back of each piece.

The frame dimensions are 12" x 12" and 1" deep.

Paper Casting
Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me to use almost every skill set. A typical piece begins as a drawing or two. Then I sculpt it in wax. This is a long refining process and often the image sculpted is far different from the drawing. Then I build a dam around the wax and pour a rubber mold directly off the surface. A casting is made by pressing wet cotton pulp into the mold and extracting the water. Then I finish the surface.
While every piece that emerges from the mold is about the same, no two are really painted the same. Maybe I would if I could, but the painting process is always in flux. I am always experimenting with ways of mixing colors or washes and hard edges or new pigments. I spend about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.

Wow!!! The item I ordered was spot on how it looks on the sellers page. It in fact is even more vibrant and so neatly done we were all amazed when we opened the package! It was a gift for my husbands birthday and I didn’t see it in person until he opened it because it was so perfectly packed. The quality, detail, and artistry behind this art piece is absolutely stunning.it even brought a tear to my husbands eye. We will cherish this piece for many years to come! Thank you so very much!

Beautiful! So unusual! As others have said, the pictures do not do this artwork justice. I was head-over-heels in love with this piece from the moment I opened the box. Thank you Kevin Dyer for sharing your wonderful talent.
