|The Sail #1|
THE SAIL #1 is a nanoscape from 2011 with a brand new story. It was named a winner in Manhattan Arts International's "Celebrate the Healing Power of Art: Positive Art That Lifts The Spirit" online juried exhibition.
WHAT THE JURORS LOOKED FOR According to the press release, the jurors “…looked for those images that impacted us viscerally in a positive manner as well as exemplifying technical prowess and originality.” The online exhibition runs from May 14- June 30, 2012.
SIZE AND INSPIRATION This 27-1/2 x 9 inch geometric abstract image was inspired by an African textile called "Ikat," which I love because of their bright colors and intricate weaving. When finished, though, a friend suggested that it might be a sail. Then, I wished for a ride on a very big boat (ship) which might attach this to its mast.
AVAILABILITY The original is framed in black and is available through this site at $350. Signed and matted prints are available at the nanoscapes site for $125/each. Look for a skateboard with this design in my zazzle store.
