The wool painting “Mermaid” is an original artwork made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool. The painting in the image was created as 14 x 11 inches, but I can also recreate this artwork in sizes 20 X 16 inches and 36 x 24 inches.
Please, keep in mind, lead time needed for me to create this painting:
- 14 x 11 inches – two weeks,
- 20 X 16 inches – one month,
- 36 x 24 inches – two months.
The price includes the frame. After your purchase, I’ll send you frame options, so you can select the one you like best. Please, specify your frame preferences: color, simple or ornate, narrow or wide, with or without mat, etc. at checkout (fill the field “order notes”) or send me email.
Before shipping the painting, I will send you photos of it to make sure that it is perfect for you. After your approval, I’ll pack everything and ship it. Or, you can always pick up the painting in person from my gallery in Jersey City.
To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. The image is created by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame without using a special needle, water, glue, or paint. This process of ‘painting’ takes many upon many hours to complete. Once finished, the picture is covered with glass to secure wool fibers in place and inserted into the frame. The result is a “wool painting” of extraordinary warmth and texture.
ABOUT WOOL PAINTINGS
Paintings made from wool bring a special warmth and energy into the house, as they are made of natural fibers. By owning such a 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 they will be decidedly delighted when learning it is created from 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.
