This is an original marquetry wood inlay depiction of Cardiff California on a low tide looking north to Dana Point . This piece is #2 of 6 original artworks created simultaneously from different woods. Employed in the production of this work are veneer from multiple species of trees either individually stained with tinted shellac or left in natural wood tones, cut piece by piece and painstakingly assembled and laminated to a 3/4” MDF substrate before being varnished under three coats of UV-inhibiting Artresin’. The piece is signed in the wood, veneered on the edges and comes with nice sturdy flush-mount French Cleat hanging hardware. All sides of this piece are sealed..
