Description

A stylised Ammonite in the rich and glinting colours of gold coins and precious jewels. An ideal gift for a fossil lover!

Height: 40 cm
Width: 40 cm
Depth: 1.5 cm

Created from torn-up fragments of a myriad of different paintings and drawings I have done previously, it features oil pastel, acrylic, glass paint, watercolour, charcoal and ink, embellished with a sprinkling of glitter and little gems.

The background and sides are painted black with hints of crimson, amethyst and gold; in places I used heavy-body acrylic to add interest and extra texture. The design is sealed with water-based transparent glue to keep everything firmly in place.

This original artwork is on stretched canvas on a sturdy wooden frame, is signed on the front and comes some guidelines on how you can care for it to keep it looking beautiful for many years.
It doesn’t need framing – the back is finished with D-rings and a cord so it’s ready to hang on the wall; alternatively you could display it on a small easel – or use it as a dramatic backdrop to a shelfie.

Delivery within the UK is included in the price. I will send it carefully packaged, by 2nd class Royal Mail, within 3 days of receiving payment.

Wherever possible, I use recycled packaging to send out my artwork. This may not look as pretty as custom or brand-new packaging but it keeps costs down and of course is less wasteful and kinder to the environment!

Inspiration

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson was one of my favourite books in childhood – although I always found the image of Blind Pew tap-tap-tapping his way along the road quite terrifying. I loved the descriptions of the hidden treasure that caused so much trouble, and I have drawn on those to inspire the colours of this collage painting: gold and rubies in a deep dark cavern, with the hint of a starry sky above.

Created with care in my studio, tucked away behind a delightful walled garden in the heart of the ancient abbey town of Sherborne.
