The Amazing Garden 12o17

Oil Painting

Created by Jonathan Herbert
This painting is one of 13 paintings that were completed between June 1, 2012 and August 31, 2012. They were painted specifically for a show at a local old-time soda fountain, and were all painted en plein aire. The series is entitled MY BROOKLYN.

These paintings are beautifully framed and are ready to hang, having been framed by Handmade Frames. The image size on the painting is 10 x 10 inches and with the frame measures 11 x 11 x 2 inches.

This was especially exciting series for me to do because of the technical challenge of imbuing my vibrant and expressive style into such small canvases.

The painting has been done on traditionally prepared Belgian linen: glue-sized, lead-primed, and then given a light wash of Venetian Red and Burnt Umber mixed with turpentine. The oil paints used are some of the finest that can be purchased, a combination of some old Holland and some Williamsburg paintings with the majority being Michael Hanley hand-ground paint from England..

In approximately one year it should be professionally varnished with damar varnish protect it, as well as to enhance its beauty. As with all artwork, this piece should not be hung in direct sunlight.

The frame and surface can be dusted lightly with a soft feather duster. Signed VERSO

The giclee of the original painting is printed on archival paper with archival inks. Limited edition of 250. Dimensions refer to image size. There is a 2'' border on each side of the print.
