Limited Edition Frescoes - PAIS Artist Residency
Support art in our national parks! Visit our blog and the link to the Indiegogo campaign for details about the Padre Island National Seashore sculpture that these pieces are a part of. Twelve limited edition motifs from the sculpture are available in support of the project. Each is made of all-natural materials, many of which hail from the island, and is housed in a bottle cap re-purposed from the shore. Paintings are traditional fresco and make unique gifts! Edition number: 25. Please allow for slight variations due to bottle cap size and hand-made nature.
Please note that purchases ship after the installation date in early November; this allows the focus to remain on production and pieces to ship in time for the holidays. Let us know if special gift circumstances merit an exception.
Why are there two prices? Some motifs simply take longer to paint and/or the materials may be rare. Special pricing of $425 for sets of twelve. Want to support the project but the limited editions aren't in your budget? Consider our "extra" - a tiny cast of a sundial shell (pictured) that comes as is or as a magnet. You can also help by sharing our project with others. Thank you!
For those who asked which is which, check out the provided images from left to right, counterclockwise in each image from the upper left: BAPTISIA has pods embedded in it. SAND DOLLAR shows the back of a sand dollar. DEER features a stag. SPECKLED CRAB looks like rose window tracery with tiny ovals (crab shell pattern) filling it in. NATURAL IMPRESSIONS shows a grouping of feathers, animal prints, and other casts. OPUNTIA has birds on cacti. MAN-MADE IMPRESSIONS shows images from beneath shoes. FIREWHEEL has flowers. SEA HEART is that beautiful, dark, shiny heart pod surrounded by rays made of sand bonded to recycled plastic. VINE has a large white flower and leaves. TRISKELION is the symbol made of three spirals on a cracked background, surrounded by sea whip. SEA TURTLE has a turtle. The EXTRA is a small, white cast of a sundial shell. Feel free to ask for more help!
