Rosemary Shadows – 24×24
Title: “Rosemary Shadows”
Medium: oil on wood panel
Size: 24 x 24 inches
This spring I decided to experiment with planting common edible plants I found in my yard to see how they’d fair in a pot. Unsurprisingly given that these plants can survive in the worst conditions, they thrived in a comfortable pot on my deck. Because I love how the leaves seem to play together, over the course of a few sunny spring days, I painted them – a chance to play with paint and shapes of color. My rosemary plant cast a shadow nearby and I decided to add that as a contrasting shape for fun.
This is an original oil painting, signed on the front and hand labeled on the back by the artist. It is painted on a hardwood panel. The panel is made of basswood and is braced with a basswood cradle. This type of painting support has been valued since the 14th century for its strength and smooth surface.
The sides are painted white and it is 1.5 inch thick. It comes wired and ready to hang.
