An original small painting combining fragments of Greek text with my drawing of a traditional Greek village and a handwritten message taken from a vintage postcard.
The collage, which was created on 300gsm watercolour paper, was carefully built up with layers of papers and painted with artists quality acrylic paints and inks, then given a final coat of clear protective varnish.
Letters Home measures 12 x 12cm (4.75 x 4.75″) and comes with a white mount measuring 23 x 23 cm
(9 x 9″). The mount fits perfectly inside a standard square frame (such as a 23cm square IKEA RIBBA) making a simple and economical framing solution.
The painting was part of a series of 100 paintings I recently completed on the theme ‘Inspired by Greece’ so could be hung as part of a group of small paintings with others from this series, or displayed on its own.
