Hand Painted Portrait on Natural Slate, Tile Painting, HESTER, Ethnic Primitive Folk Art by Stacey Torres


Original primitive folk portrait called "HESTER." This delicate piece was done on a 5.75" x 5.75" natural slate tile.

HESTER is a beautiful woman dressed for the winter in a dark blue coat with light fluffy blue fur trim at the collar and sleeves - She clearly loves the chilly outdoors.

I first prepped the slate tile, leaving it in its beautiful natural state (nicks, chips and cracks are included for free), then create my portrait with colored pencils detailed with colored markers and watercolors. Hester's ring is enhanced by a silver glitter pen. After allowing the art piece to settle for 24 hours, the tile is baked in an oven, and then receives 2 to 4 coats of acrylic sealer. Please note, this is NOT to be used as a coaster - even though it is sealed. It is a piece of art for display and decorative purposes only. Moisture resting on the tile can still cause damage to your beautiful painting.

To display, please feel free to stand this up on a shelf or rest it in a small easel/plate stand.
