Thank you ellengins! I am glad you like this.The original art work is a mixed media installation piece. Much of the back ground if pieces of hand dyed silk or paper. The figures in the foreground are acrylic on paper. The piece was assembled on untreated canvas - 6 foot by 6 foot, The surface was then sealed front and back with an Liquitex ph neutral acrylic fluid medium and varnish. It was professionaly photographed for reproductions - such as this design on Sponnflower. The original hands in the lobby of Fox river Academy of Music and Art in Oswergo, IL.
