Heavily gilded limited edition F.H. illuminations are individually hand gilded with 24kt gold, signed, numbered and ready for framing.

Each museum-quality illumination is made with bright archival water resistant inks on velvety smooth lightfast acid free pH neutral 100% α-cellulose German Etching paper by Hahnemühle who’s papers have been prized in European houses of nobility for centuries for their highest levels of craftsmanship and superb durability. 

Only 50 F.H. illuminations each of two sizes will be made from the original 2.5"x3.5" watercolor and 24k gold illumination. It features a Turkish and Egyptian styled bird based loosely on a tile that resides in the Leighton House Museum in London and was presented as inspiration in a class with Ayesha Gamiet. The origional tile had a different bird eating a snake. This is a fictional bird with a ribbon instead. I painted it when I had Covid-19. I was very dizzy at the time so was content to work very detailed in a small space. The name inspiration is from the Falcon Heavy rocket and the paints were hand made by a friend in Turkey.   © BKS 2021
