Orchid - Dendrobium Dream (Dendrobium Perardii) - Original Stone Lithograph
This piece is a personal favorite. These are the gentle and delicate blossoms of a deciduous orchid, Dendrobium pierardii (renamed D. Aphylum). This work has a certain soft, flowing rhythm that can take away my headache if I focus only on it. There is a piece of music that does this also, a Chopin Nocturne. Perhaps music and painting deal with the same sequences of space or rhythm... visual or audible.
A Stone Lithograph is an art medium which is a museum quality graphic, totally hand made and hand printed. Mary has hand drawn each artwork on plates. Each finished artwork uses 18-21 plates per image. Each plate holds a different color of ink. Each color has to be perfectly hand registered to go over previous color. The plates are printed by hand on BFK, German handmade acid free 400 lb paper. Each printing of this piece of artwork is considered an original work of art by any museum. The color varies with each hand printing, making each one unique unto itself.
The largest size this piece can be made is around 5'x 7' if it is made into a giclee print.
This stone lithograph is only one size, as the original.
