Crown of Thorns – Two

Corona de espinas – Dos

Razor-sharp thorns protect beautiful clusters of vibrant flowers in this Madagascar native, which is a signature plant of Mederterrian and tropical climates. Each delicate, waxy flower unfolds to reveal its unique splendor.

There is something elemental in this plant, Pain and beauty are married. It bleeds white if cut. Crown of Thorns is México’s soul. Alma.

This is one of two Crown of Thorns artworks based on a series of photographs, backlit to illuminate the blooms and create mystery in its crevasses. Hang these Crown of Thornes together and the synergy will vitalize your room.

Abstraction releases the sun’s light, radiating the blooms of this mystical plant.

This artwork is part of a pair.

I have a special love of Crown of Thorns, corona de espina. The plant holds a sacred place in the heart of Catholic Mexico. Pain and beauty are often intertwined in Catholicism.

These are the Crown of Thorns that grow on my terraza.

This rare plant has been in life since I was a child. A very special Crown of Thorns journeyed with me to New Mexico from California. Unfortunately, it spent a freezing night in Flagstaff and the plant died all the way back to the dirt. It arose, growing over time to four feet high and three feet in diameter. It thrived for years bringing much pleasure. After 15 years, its time was done and it returned to the dirt from which it grew. Its own cycle of life.

Crown of Thorns makes life richer, more beautiful and dangerous.

Basic Material & Edge | Finish options below

Fine Art Paper Finishing

Unless otherwise requested, all fine art paper prints will come with a one-inch border for ease of framing.   If you don’t want a border, let me know.  The art looks beautiful without a border “floated” (placed on top) of matte board. 

There are several options with deckled edge which should be floated on a matte.  Please contact me to discuss the options.

Canvas Stretching

I print on two types of canvas, matte finish (an elegant, smooth flat finish) and gloss finish (shinier and reflective).  In general, I prefer the matte finish.  These can be thin stretched on ¾ inch stretcher bars.  They can be hung unframed or framed.  Some pieces can be gallery wrapped where the image wraps around the side.  Or the side can be white, black or a complimentary color that I usually choose to go with the artwork.  There are other options.  You can have the canvas stretched over 1.5 inch stretcher bars, a dramatic look. 

Metal Prints

The metal prints have the look of a plexiglass or acrylic print and are more economical.

The Metal Print with a Float Hanger  

The surface white Gloss Metal Prints has a white base to maximize color and contrast. Its high gloss surface provides a metallic look while preserving the white points in an image. Final product should display high level luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

Metal Silver Gloss

The surface has a clear metallic base providing a true metallic look. Higher gloss surface allowing a more silver appearance. Provides a maximum luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

I am happy to provide advice on framing and can help you with this process.  Contact me.  I love to work with my clients!
