Salt crystals create the fractal effects in this painting - after watercolour paint is applied to wet paper, two different types of salt are hand sprinkled in (mostly) random patterns. The salt pulls up the paint around it, and is brushed off after the piece has fully dried. In some places, the spots left behind are where the salt has bonded to the watercolor paper.

Mats are not included, and are shown here for illustrative purposes only. The mats shown are 5"x7" in size, and fit the painting exactly.

This piece of art has been treated with a permanent protective clear finish coating, to keep your painting protected from sunlight, dust & humidity. I still recommend keeping it safe behind a frame!

Please note that is the original painting, and is not a print. No print will ever be made of this, and it’s one of a kind! Ships *free* via USPS First Class within the United States, inside of a plastic sleeve in a sturdy rigid mailer. Comes from a smoke-free home.

"cynosure 1" - one in a series of paintings inspired by beautiful words with beautiful meanings. Created with violet purple, cerulean blue, and splashes of magenta pink, this painting measures 5"x7" and is done on 140lb cold-press watercolor paper.
