Inspired by seasonal wild flowers and summer windowsills. The Stripey Jug was created from layers of cut and torn hand decorated papers which, after the composition is established, are firmly adhered to the background. Acrylic paint and inks are then applied, which, along with layers of tissue paper and hand-carved stamps, brings the painting together. The painting is finished with a clear protective matte varnish.
This is a highly textured, cheerful mixed-media painting with a sunny, contemporary feel. It measures 30 x 30cm (12 x 12″) and is being sold unmounted and unframed for you to frame and hang as you prefer.
It does happen to fit nicely into a standard Ikea Ribba 50 x 50 cm frame (which comes with a 30cm aperture) which makes for a simple and economical framing option.
The Stripey Jug partners very well with The Red Bowl and Holiday Flowers which are available here as originals and as giclee prints.
