Rose & Ivy Pattern Tattoo

It was great to be able to paint a version as well as the screen prints. -The work was created in gouache on wood and was really great to work on, and as far as you can be in love with a painting medium, gouache gets my valentine!- I love the almost china like quality that the finished result produces. The entire set of painted boards that were in the Decked Project can be seen on my Flickr page here…
