Watercolor applied to a wooden box
5" x 8" x 3"
In the Artist's Words:
“Art on a Box uses reclaimed cigar boxes. The paintings are done on Arches 300-lb watercolor paper.
This process is like doing a regular watercolor painting in that I work the piece as a picture but it is laid out as I paint as it will appear on the box. Once the painting is complete, I prep the box to prepare to accept the paper. Then I cut the painting and glue it to the box. I then fine tune the painting so the images flow down the side of the box. I finish by using an affixative followed by a varnish to seal the painting and provide a UV protection. “
