- Original Paintings
- Early Riser
When running on the backroads in Vermont, I am so excited to see this little white flower when the snow has left, evidence of spring finally arriving! It is often the only pop of “color” when all else is still brown and lifeless. Though I don’t often see it, where I do, it is in abundance, covering the ground under wild apple trees…one of those moments in nature when I feel honored to see what’s before me.
This painting is encased in my signature live-edge wooden frame. Framed oil painting dimensions are 12” x 12.” Hanging hardware is affixed to rear of frame. This dark frame was created using a Japanese technique, called Shou sugi ban, where the wood is torched in flame to acquire a darkened color, bringing out the natural grain of the wood and preserving it, without the need of a chemical stain. Three coats of eco Poly-whey varnish protect the handcrafted frame.
A Certificate of Authenticity is included with every original painting.
