Sunstrokes is an Oil Pastel Sgraffito, a spontaneous, cheery piece that demanded rich, vibrant color. Sunflowers symbolize unwavering faith, long life, and good luck.

Practiced in Italy since the 1730’s, Sgraffito is an old and beautiful “subtractive” method of creating images by scraping away a surface of medium in patterns and shapes to expose underlying layer(s) of color.

7" x 10" original oil pastel artwork on acid free paper matted to fit an 11 x 14" frame. Price: $175 matted. Framing, taxes and shipping are extra.
