Monroe is painted on a 10” x 10” x 1 1/2” cradled board. Glimpses of Red, White and Blue can be seen under the cool gray background paint. Please CLICK on photo for additional views of Monroe.

Monroe is painted with mixed media on a 10” x 10” x 1 1/2. The sides and back are painted black. 

Piece comes ready to hang with sturdy sawtooth hanger attached. Painted with Artist grade acrylic paint, Monroe has embossed and other delightful papers affixed under the painted surface. Prior to painting, I applied one coat of Country Living Caramal Colours Chipping Creme prep paint which allowed me to sand the surface paint without exposing the board. The painting was crackled with JoSonja Crackle Medium, followed by acrylic antiquing. After the antiquing, I painted an additional layer of paint over the crackle in some areas. This adds To the aged, Primitive look! 

Three coats of Liquitex Professional water based varnish were then applied. Piece is an Original. It is signed, dated, and an ‘0’ appears on the painting. A Certificate of Authenticity additionally confirms you are now the owner of the painting!

Keep her out of direct sunlight and you will enjoy her for many years.
