Invite the warmth and beauty of the Italian seaside into your home with the gorgeous wool painting, “Italy shore.” This sunny landscape presents the view seen from a home perched on the side of an Italian mountain, which boasts an uninterrupted view of the Mediterranean. It overlooks the shoreline where several white houses, with their red-tiled roofs, make up the tiny village below. The painting is a kaleidoscope of color: from the vivid hues of flowers cascading out of their terra cotta pot on the hillside piazza, down to the brilliant blue of the Mediterranean sea with its bobbing sailboats, and off into the distance where the muted shades of the sky touch the sea. The subject matter and glowing colors are sure to draw the eyes of your guests. This unique artwork would make a beautiful addition to any home’s décor, or be a wonderful reminder of journeys made or a promise of travels yet to come.
The wool painting “Italy shore” is an original artwork. Painting size: 10 x 8 inches (25.4 x 20.3 cm). Painting is nicely framed in a brown frame and ready to hang. Overall size: 11 ¾ x 9 ¾ inches (29.8 x 24.8 cm).
I also offer different frames and can switch to the frame of your choice.
You can also buy the wool painting as is, without frame and glass. To keep the painting safe during shipping, a plexiglass cover will be used to protect the fibers. You can then use the frame of your choice to display the image.
To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. All of my paintings are made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame, covered with glass and inserted into the frame. This process does not use any glue, needle, water, or paint.
Wool paintings carry special warmth and energy as wool is a natural, living material that keeps the mood and warmth of artist’s hands. Wool paintings have useful properties: they relax, soothe, and calm as the viewer pleasantly examines them. A photo of a wool painting does not convey all that can be felt upon close and detailed examination. By owning such painting, you can ask your guests the mysterious question of what material is it made of. They will generally be indecisive on if it is painted in oil or with watercolor, but decidedly delighted when they learn it is natural sheep’s fiber. Wool painting is always a stylish decoration and original gift. It creates an atmosphere of magic and fills your home with comfort.
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.
