Short Attention Span - diamond-shaped wall decor painting by Irene Stapleford - original art, wantknot shop

Painting inspired by a dream, in which snakes were everywhere, but they weren't scary. Confetti or energy dots traveling above snake against triangles painted pattern.

24 inches square by 1.5 inches deep cradled plywood panel, rotated 45 degrees, so the art takes up a 34" square area on the wall, diamond orientation. Signed, dated 2017, titled on the reverse; wired and ready to hang. Unframed, sides painted the vivid green of the background.

Art will be packaged with care to get to you safely. Happy to put together a more precise shipping quote for your location, just contact me.

This is a beautiful piece and I can already see that it will be a favourite of mine. Irene was very thoughtful in her communications and she even sent me a beautiful handmade free gift. Honestly, how could a buyer ask for more? V happy :))
