This painting began on a summer night while I was at my parents’ house in upstate New York. I had been frustrated with something I don’t remember now and used the vertical brush strokes t release that frustration. The diagonal red lines were made with a rubber band which also lent itself well to venting frustration. After I had finished with the back ground I had felt much better and to off-set the feeling of frustrations I had while making this painting I added the violets. They are soft and delicate and give the painting a sense of grounding and stability. They also bring beauty and a hope for the future. Placing this painting in your home will bring beauty and balance, and a reminder that it’s ok to have frustrations but let them be let out in healthy ways that will lead to grounding and stability in the future. This is a soft and delicate process that is refined over time. It is painted with watercolors on watercolor paper, and drawn with ink. It comes matted and with a handmade (by my husband) solid black walnut wooden frame. The Frame is 11.5 x 14.5 inches with the image size being 5.5 X 8.5 inches It will come to you wrapped in fabric and tied with a bow. It will be a perfect way to give it as a gift to someone else or to yourself. On the back I have placed a self-leveling hanging system to make installation quick and easy to alleviate frustrations for you. You just have to put the nail in the wall where you would like the painting to hang and it does the rest of the work for you. I also cut the mat myself and installed it with care. The picture does not come with glass, as I have found that it breaks easily in transportation and often creates a glare in most settings preventing you from seeing the painting clearly. If you would prefer to have glass in the frame you can purchase it from your local frame shop or art store (it will cost about $10 maybe less). To care for your painting, it will need a light dusting every now and then which you can use a soft cloth for that is completely dry. I would not recommend placing it anywhere it can get hit by water or in the bathroom where the steam could cause the watercolors to react.
