Abstract expressionist Deirdra Alexander loves the feel of paint and what it can do. Using large brushes she moves the paint around the canvas in an an intuitive and exciting way. Our trays take many stages and steps on their way to becoming the singular, signed works of art that they are. We found a wonderful craftsman in Tennessee to build our custom tray designs out of the clearest best quality woods. Then Ouida and I take over in our studio with either hand rubbed stain, or often six or more coats of paint that we work with and layer to achieve the result we're after. The surface of the image is protected with a durable finish that makes this tray not only eye-catching, but completely useful as well. We're proud to sign each tray we create, and prouder still when we hear from folks how much they love them in their homes. Here, her wonderful Flowerful is showcased in a custom built tray layered in cream paint with a glaze to add depth, and gold rim that perfectly highlights the artwork.
Tray measures 13" x 13" x 2.25".
