Auction No. 14: Colosseum watercolor

10 Aug

Meet Angela Mapes Turner of Auburn, Ind. This is her second time creating for Joey’s Auction. This year, she offers up an 8×10-inch watercalled called “Colosseo, Roma,” which is matted in an 11×14-inch frame.

The image is inspired by a photo of the Colosseum I took during a recent vacation in Rome. This was my second trip there, and what struck me about the Colosseum is the way it appears to be different colors depending on the light and the time of day. Even on this return trip, it literally stopped me in my tracks when I turned a corner and saw it.

The piece is created on lightly textured watercolor paper using professional-quality watercolor paints; it’s matted under a pre-cut off-white matte and stabilized with a white matboard on the back. The painting is ready to frame and hang and was created with acid-free, high-quality materials to last a lifetime — or several.

Find some more of Angie’s work on her blog, A Small Collection.

This auction will be open through the morning of Aug. 12. Want more details about Joey’s Auction? Click here.

    I think the current cost of the paints/canvas is worth $40.00 for Joey!

    Sorry, Big Joe. Did I say $25? I actually meant $55.
