Legrand’s Folly is an original mixed media painting being released as part of the 25 Days of Minis for 2019.
When my father would read to my brother and I before bed, he would often choose the classics, like Rudyard Kipling or Edgar Allen Poe. I can still hear his voice when I re-read Poe’s The Gold Bug and picture my brother and I rapt with thoughts of buried treasure.
Created on a 8″x8″ wood panel, this one of a kind artwork was handmade by Alecia Miller through a process of layering old book pages in the background and utilizing the transparency of the paints to achieve the light and airy feel of the final painting.
The artwork has been sealed with a protective varnish and is mounted in a black wood frame, ready to display in your home.
