This beautiful matted and framed print measures 8 by 10 inches. The inspirational text reads, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass..." It's about learning how to dance in the rain." For centuries, monastic artists hand lettered, illuminated, and painted books and scrolls on parchment. Celtic artist, Kevin Dillon, has rediscovered this medieval technique used by the ancient monks. He crushes semi-precious stones - lapis lazuli, cinnabar, azurite and others, to make his own paints. Using a goose quill, the letters are meticulously applied to the calf-skin vellum, and one at a time, the colors are applied. The final illumination is achieved using 24K gold leaf. The artist's seal, is imprinted into molten wax at the bottom of each piece, making every print a unique artistic treasure to be enjoyed for years to come! This unique framed print makes a great gift idea, and a wonderful addition to any home or office.
