Introducing a stunning new watercolor and graphite image of an old carved bench in late afternoon sunlight titled “Mission Bench" by Lotus MacDowell. This piece of art, inspired by a vineyard entrance in Napa Valley, CA, was created with a limited palette of colors. Colors that are bold yet subtle at the same time and sure to please even the most discriminating art lover. The shadows give the painting a 3-dimensional effect as they highlight the texture on the wall.

Lotus used smooth watercolor paper, which allowed her to create the light pencil and brushwork in the background. The subject is simple, she said, but the light and shadows give it a dimension that is captivating.

Now you can muse about who sat there and what was said between people at that very spot, year after year, with your very own original painting of this graphic image. Perfect for home and office decor.

This watercolor and graphite original by Lotus MacDowell is on D'Arches hot press paper. It is matted with a combination of a subtle gray stucco pattern top mat and is finished off with a speckled dark brown liner mat and a soft stone color bottom mat. The painting is perfectly framed in a dark brown frame with a raised curved pattern, which mimics the repeated architectural shapes found in the bench. This conservation framing includes Museum glass to protect against harmful UV rays and to minimize  distracting reflections, creating a perfect final product.
