'this suspense is terrible. i hope it will last.' - oscar wilde

this is an original mixed media painting titled SAVED FROM DESTRUCTION. this piece is truly a labor of love. it features a rare and delicate antique book page and vintage wallpaper i collected in my travels through eastern europe. the antique book this page comes from was saved from a fire at a castle in transilvania a century ago. the piece it painstakingly collaged with layers of dainty vellum paper to create a play on transparencies and textures. i played with fire quite a bit to get the paper edges just right. shhhh! don't tell! ;)

size: 8"x 10"
medium: acrylic, book pages, coffee, vellum, wallpaper, fire, vintage frame
palette: white, cream, cognac, brown
inspiration: found objects, adversity, suspense

the painted vintage frame is an integral part of this piece. the painting is wired and ready to hang.

initialed on the front. signed, titled and dated on the reverse.

the piece will be packaged with care and shipped securely via USPS. i ship 24-48 hours from purchase during business days. you will receive a tracking number.

thank you for taking an interest in my art! i will happily answer any questions and requests for custom work.

original mixed media collage in upcycled frame. saved from destruction.
