This is a close-up view of "Before the City Lights", an original ink painting of a classic Garden of the Gods view in Colorado Springs. I used one of my many photos of this view to reference from. Unfortunately, the city lights have made the Milky Way in this direction impossible to see at night with the unaided eye, so I had to imagine what I might see before the city lights were there. So beautiful...
This is a 4"x8" subway tile that is painted with alcohol ink and then coated with varnish and many coats of resin to protect it and make it UV resistant. Then, the tile is mounted on a piece of beetle kill wood that has been finished with stain and multiple resin coats. The finished piece has a beautiful glossy finish and it's dimensions are approximately 6" x 12". There is a wire hanger on the back and is signed both on the tile and the finished piece by the artist.
With the sale of this piece, 10% of my proceeds will go to support Dark Skies of the Wet Mountain Valley
