Wool painting “Girl by the sea” is a very romantic and gentle work of art. An appealing young girl, wearing a lovely pink dress, pauses on the sandy beach, as foamy waves roll toward her feet. She gazes thoughtfully into the distance, where the restless blue sea merges with soft pastel shades at the horizon, and the last rays of the setting sun highlight the lonely sailboat. Childhood is fading and she ponders the future ahead: does something wonderful await, love, happiness … Lost in thought, she does not witness the beauty surrounding her, though it would seem she already has everything needed to be happy. The imagery and colors in “Girl by the sea” will add a charming touch to the walls of your home, captivate your guests, and also make a wonderful gift for anyone that loves ocean scenes and introspective artwork.
The wool painting “Girl by the sea” is an original artwork. Painting size: 14 x 11 inches (35.6 x 27.9 cm). Painting is nicely framed in a blue with distressed finish frame and ready to hang. Overall size: 17 x 14 inches (43.2 x 35.6 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.
