Over the Moon

Over the Moon

185.00

This  8”x11“ handcrafted box was crafted from locally sourced pine with a Walnut or other dark wood spline joint , incorporated glass to protect artwork and is  treated with a mixture of orange oil and beeswax to preserve the wood. This box has sawtooth hangers attached on the rear of the piece for easy wall mounting. The original art within is hand painted with chalk pastel  on paper which has been cut out and mounted into the box using a variety of techniques depending upon the application needed. All materials are archival or treated to be.

The first pastel I ever attempted as an adult is one that has stuck around. In its first incarnation there was no moon, just a gaggle of children clinging to kites and balloons chasing a hot air balloon through a blue sky. Soon giants sitting on mountains were blowing the balloons, and then birds and beasts joined in the fray. In the latest version, this shadow box depicts an oldman moon blowing one of these children higher into the heavens. In the upper right hand corner a small knob can be pulled, causing the girl to actually move upwards.
