Marbled Vintage Dictionary Page ~ Cougar

54.00

Original, one-of-a-kind marbled vintage dictionary page on wood panel, signed, and ready to hang.

I love the sketches that accompany a definition in a dictionary. I often wonder how it is decided that a word gets a picture and who makes that decision. As I page through old dictionaries, I have a habit of pulling out sketches that catch  my eye ~ either for their artistic interpretation of the word associated with it or because I thought it was fascinating (or hilarious) that the publisher decided an image was necessary.  

In this piece (one of five that used to hang in my studio), I marbled a traditional Italian Vein pattern in shades of blues, brown, and white for the definition and sketch of "cougar." By using a "clear paint" in the marbled pattern, the natural wood grain is visible and adds an additional layer of texture and personality. 

Marbled on pine panel sourced from sustainable forests, a light acrylic spray finish has been added. The edges are finished with acrylic paint in white.
