This is a 24" x 36" Original Acrylic Painting entitled "Fairy Princess." Credits for the reference photo go to Bruce's daughter, professional photographer and therapist Natalie Burtenshaw. Bruce fell in love with the photo the moment that he first saw it.
Burtenshaw painted the background slightly out of focus in order to bring this adorable little princess girl to the forefront of the painting. Her surprised gaze, colorful face paintings, pretend mystical wand, and the enchantment of her winged costume add to the magical feeling brought out by the painting. The transparent and shaded areas of her dress and the amount of detail in the background reveal Burtenshaw's extreme devotion to realism.
Burtenshaw painted the image on a 1-1/2" deep professional quality Ampersand Museum Series Gessobord cradled hardwood panel. Unlike canvas, these cradled boards are less susceptible to moisture, never sag or stretch, and can be hung framed or unframed.
Cradled wood panels are hardwood panels (1/8" thick), which are reinforced with hardwood strips (1-1/2" deep) adhered to the perimeter and centers on the back side of the panel.
Mahalo for your interest in Bruce's paintings!
