Stone panel wood pencil holder with Lascaux Reindeer painting

Stone panel wood pencil holder with Lascaux Reindeer painting

This reindeer design came from the cave of Lascaux in France. It is meant to look like a lost fragment of cave art as it might have looked freshly painted 15,000 years ago.

Burnt umber paint is airbrushed and hand-painted on to a beautiful weathered 4" x 4" slate tile. Then I carve in to the surface of the stone to bring out the detail of the lines. The pigment is earth-based, so this painting could survive for 15,000 years, just like the first cave art. The stone is subtle shades of dark cream with a sunset glow along the bottom third.  The stone tile has a weathered and ancient look.

I don't usually put varnish on my stone paintings, but I put a light layer of archival varnish on this stone so that it may safely be wiped clean and withstand gentle handling. The stone begs to be touched!
