I Favor Fire

Another watercolor painting where I was playing with mixing salt into the paint. The gradient was also a challenge in creating this painting. The poem is by Robert Frost, and I think it suits the rest of the painting very well.

- watercolor
- table salt

Completed 2001.

I love this ;A; You take commissions for things like this? (Since I highly doubt this is for sale.)

I've still got this piece if you want to make an offer on it. It's been stored flat for 10 years. :)

8D yay!

I'm kinda bad with prices, but, first how big is it anyways? c: I'd hate to buy it and not have a frame

Uhm... name a price range and I'll see if I can work something out. c:

I take it you aren't interested?

I don't have the money right now >w< But I'm still interested. Unless you have another buyer or something then don't wait for me.

I'd like $45 + shipping, it would have to be shipped rolled up in a tube

I love this poem, especially it's structure. And your "illustration" suits it very well :)

It's a bit hard to tell what the second line says, but the i know the quote, so it's clear. I love how you've depicted it! Great job!! Love it :)

The text mixes well with the gradient of the painting everywhere except the line 'some say in ice'. It's pretty hard to make that line out. Otherwise, very thoughtful piece! :clap:

That may be where the flash hit the paper - this is a larger piece that I had to photograph. I promise to get a better one up when my mother brings my scanner back.:)

That's why I hardly ever post my traditional pieces, I hate what the flash does to them! No worries though, it's a great piece nonetheless :)
