Description

This listing is for the original painting of my work, "Lady of August", the first in a series of Art Nouveau style ladies representing the birthstones and birth flowers of each month.

The Lady of August bears the Poppy and dons the stone of Peridot. The Poppy represents peace in death, while the Peridot will bring her strength. She ushers in a time of reminiscence.

For Lady of August, I drew upon the themes of mourning and remembrance of the Obon festival of Japan. During this festival, lanterns guide the spirits of loved ones to and from the underworld. She is a Lady of guidance for these spirits. Unlike the Lady of November, she is not a beacon for the dead, she is the river. She is the gentle stream that brings the spirits ever homeward and back again, protecting them on their long journey.

MEDIUM
Watercolor and ink on watercolor paper with 23k gold leaf accents in the lettering that shine.

SIZE
Unmatted - 10 x 20 inches

Shipping for this item is FREE within the US! The painting will be shipped flat and reinforced so it will not be curled up or dented on the corner when it arrives to you.

CARE AND DISPLAY
Watercolor paintings should be displayed under glass with UV filtering to prevent them from fading or yellowing.
