India Ink Portrait on Ceramic Tile, MIZ LILAC, Ethnic Art women of color African American Art ragtime Edwardian Harlem Renaissance


Beautiful soft, delicate India Ink painting on 6 x 6" Ceramic Tile, MIZ LILAC.

MIZ LILAC is a beautiful woman of color - A seamstress - Some time around 1917, she stands in a peaceful meadow waiting for a sign ... a sign of what? From her lover - a friend - does she wait for a letter -- or a message in the wind? Miz Lilac has soft brown skin and dark hair. Dressed in a lovely lilac Edwardian gown with a beautiful, feminine hat in shades of pink and lavender, holding a pink parasol ... Miz Lilac waits.

I first prepped the ceramic tile, then painted my portrait with pigmented India Ink. After the ink dries, 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.
