Waiting for Spring

The map I have chosen to paint on dates from pre 1911 as the magnetic South Pole is still “unexplored”.
It was a longish thin shape in excellent condition so I didn’t want to paint on it; I think pristine antique maps should stay pristine; the challenge for me is to take the damaged, fragile, unloved pieces of cartography and turn them into a contemporary artwork. So for this painting I scanned the map and printed it out on 300gm 100% cotton archival paper. This was then sealed with matt medium before painting my patient penguin using a combination of acrylics and a little oil pastel.
Professionally framed in a lovely black wooden frame.
Available from Will's Art Warehouse who can arrange international shipping.
