A small banner fish swims contentedly among the coral reefs inhabiting his undersea world, which provide a hiding place from harmful predators and supports the algae that nourishes him. The blue and pink pillars of coral provide the ideal contract for his bolder colors. This beautiful wool painting is sure to prompt conversations about the exotic marine life beneath the waves of the ocean.
To create this picture I used a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. The picture is fashioned by layering wool fibers on a flat surface, weaving them a tiny bit, and then pressing a glass covering over the top.
Wool is a living material and the fibers always act differently when laid into place, as such each of my wool paintings is unique. The picture you receive is a one of a kind piece that will be a wonderful and special decoration for your home for many years to come.
Please contact me if you have questions about my wool paintings or are interested in having something created especially for you. I would love to take your dream and fashion it into a wool painting for your enjoyment.
