Where does the rainbow end, in your soul or on the horizon?” ― Pablo Neruda
At first view, it's about welcoming and loving an older orange cat with a funny face who needs a good home - and being amazed how much fierce purring and gentle love our new family member brought with him.
And, it's about love and welcome to all people as well. Regardless of our differences - celebrate those! - our similarities are so many more.
Find the similarities.
I think this is an entrance way statement, yes?
[Technical thought: I used the carved directional grooves in the lino to make the texture of the stormy rain.]
This is a small, limited series (not technically an edition) totalling 4 hand coloured AP (Artist Proof) prints only. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that just 3 other people on the entire planet will have, this is for you!
I make limited edition lino prints by first carving a design into a piece of linoleum, then rolling the lino with ink, and then pressing this onto paper. Once I’ve created the lines, I do all my colouring with Winsor and Newton Artists’ Watercolours. When creating my original art, I use Archival quality watercolour paper, usually 100% cotton Arches paper from France.
The dimensions of this image are about 30cm x 20cm (approx 12" x 8"), and there is ample paper around that for mounting and framing. Good framing adds around 10 - 12cm (5") on all sides, more at the bottom.
I recommend ordering Unframed if it's coming to you via the postal service/s - this saves us both money on postage, and gives you the chance to support a local framing artisan, too. [Hesitant to manage framing locally? Download my new art collectors introduction to the basics.] If you meet me at a market stall to pick up, I can arrange professional framing for you in about 2-3 weeks.
