Saint Gaudens Lily Pond is framed in a solid wood 1.5" frame, has a 2.5" white matting and is protected under a sheet of crystal clear UV protected acrylic. Acrylic instead of glass is becoming the preferred way to protect water media. It is extremely lightweight, will not break and does not reflect light as glass does. If interested please ask for a photo of the framed painting.
This painting is professionally framed and is wired and ready to hang.
This painting was inspired by a visit to Saint-Gaudens National Historic Park in the summer of 2016. Saint-Gauden had lovely lily ponds through his estate and this particular arrangement of lily leaves and flowers were so captivating that I knew I had to paint them. I completed the painting the following year.
