About the Item

LOOK FOR FREE SHIPPING AT CHECKOUT. ARTIST EXPLANATION OF THE PAINTINGS: Mona Lisa in Blue measures 20 x 16" x 1.5" and is oil on birch panel . Ready to hang with wire on the back. Artist description :These five paintings of Mona Lisa in a contemporary style are blurred. So I paint them with a regular brush, let the paint get partially dry, and then I use a brush to go over it many times to blur the paint. Sometime if it gets too blurred I go back in and do some more painting to define an area, and then use a big special brush to blur the image again. This results in a modern strong graphic representation of the Mona Lisa. Mona Lisa in Blue has a birch side 1.5" so there is no need for a frame. This colorful Mona Lisa is a contemporary take on the most iconic painting in the world. Once painted, the paint is smeared, leaving the most essential and recognizable pieces of the image.
