An Idea Is Trapped In This Painting - Original Watercolour Painting

I guess I was thinking about whether a concept has a life beyond the painting it's in. Or if an artist puts an idea in a painting but no one else can see it. Stuff like that.

Also I couldn't get a good scan of this painting. It's got so many soft and gentle bits of purple and blue that my scanner just wouldn't pick up. It's soft, washy, and a little odd.


Painted on 9"x12" watercolour paper. Since these paintings are loose and scrappy, they may have a smudge or two, but that's a big part of their charm.

Signed on the back. Add a note if you want it signed on the front as well.




You don't need to frame it, but here are some tips if you wanna.

You can find 9"x12" frames online and in home decor stores, but the selection can be limited. It's often easier to use a 12"x16" frame (a standard IKEA size, super easy to find), and then use a mat to make the painting to fit.

You can buy a plain white mat from me to go with your painting, buy them elsewhere online, or get your local frame shop to cut you one.

You can also get a custom frame made at any frame shop.
