Acrylic paint on vintage paper ledger page (handwritten).

Description

Peacocks are almost too beautiful to try to paint. While this has some fine detail, I see this more of a design, but never-the-less, this peacock, named Bob, came to life, emerging off of an old handwritten ledger sheet from 1895. I used acrylic opaquely, as well as transparently to help it emerge from the page. Metallic gold has been added to small portions of this. The page was torn out of the book that I own. So one edge is straight, the other is varied, due to the tear pattern. So the darker brown on the main photo is not part of the artwork. While this can be matted and framed, my sample framing shows it 'float mounted' - a framer should be able to help and advise. Shipped flat.
