This is a close-up of "Garden Mysteries", an original alcohol ink painting that was inspired by a photo I saw of the Milky Way over Pikes Peak. You can see this view from the visitor center of the Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs. The Milky Way is hard to see because of the city lights, but a camera's sensitive sensor was able to pick up it's light. How amazing our night sky is!
This is a 2"x4" 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 natural edge wood from a local forest fire that has been finished with stain and multiple resin coats. The finished piece has a beautiful glossy finish and it's dimensions is approximately 4" x 10". 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
