STRINGS© by Olga van Dijk

Currently unavailable for purchase

Sometimes you just know,
when something is right…
I had that feeling while creating “STRINGS”

I love to work with the batik method to outline the abstract shapes. The white lines enhance the colors and provide that extra bold dimension.
Before matting the painting, I glued – with a special collage medium the music on.
(The medium will conserve the music paper and will not yellow it later.)
Then I matted good quality thick matting on the watercolor.
As final touch musical notes (Czerny) are also glued ON the matting which gives it that depth feeling.
I framed this watercolor in a simple black wooden gallery frame, ready to go for the next exhibit!

Medium: watercolor and mixed media (Original sheet music)

Abstract watercolor on cold press heavy weight paper 140 LB (330 g/m2)

Dimensions: White Mat Size 16″×20″
Watercolor Opening 11"x 14"

This watercolor/collage has been chosen by the Center for Creative Arts (CCArts, Yorklyn DE) to be on their Regional Post Card to announce their 2007 Annual Regional Fine Arts Exhibition
