Several people have asked me about my pastels and larger pieces. So here you go. This piece is 18" x 24". The opening bid is $99.
This highly detailed pastel is done in the style of Trompe l'Oeil which means "to fool the eye". The actual matt is painted into the painting allowing for me to paint the fabric to appear as if it is falling out of the picture. So it's not really a cut matt. The close up photo at the auction site reveals the careful detail in this painting.
The painting is 18" x 24" and easily framed in a standard size frame. Spacers for providing a 1/4 inch space between the glass and work are included with the painting along with simple instructions on how to use them. It is carefully packaged in it's own case so nothing touches the work. The work is lightly sprayed.
