Tree People - hand coloured, limited edition lino print
This is a magical wish for all those in love – to discover the stability and nourishment of growing and learning alongside another, each supporting the other to bloom in their own unique way. Often given for weddings, engagements, anniversaries or any celebration of love, sometimes with the poem by Kahlil Gibran included (they seem to go together so well!):
"Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love; Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls."
This is a limited edition totalling just 9 hand coloured, individually numbered prints. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that just 8 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. [Dubious that you can 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.
