Inspired by landscape detail in Renaissance paintings, this miniature painting to wear is made with very fine brushes and a magnifier. It is painted in acrylics on wood, with 22k gold leaf gilding on the sides. Signed and dated on the back.
It measures 13/16” high by 1 1/4” wide. The wood is 1/8” thick. The pin back is 3/4” long. The three panels are attached by immovable wires, so the triptych does not open and close.
Both the painting and the gold leaf are varnished and the entire piece is sealed with a protective wax coating. Store carefully in the pouch to avoid scratching. Avoid prolonged contact with water or products that contain alcohol, like perfume.
The painting, gilding, assembly and design are all done by me alone. I get some help with the panel cutting, but my studio is a solo operation!
