The samurai warrior catches a koi dragon in his teeth, indicating good fortune is on his horizon.
The 12 x 24 back of the ruan (a Chinese lute introduced to Japan in the 7th century) was painted with various yellow and brown acrylics to create a muted backdrop for the warrior and his fishy friend, while the underpainting was created with gouache to block in their forms. The piece was finely detailed with dark brown enamel and then clear-coated to lock in the various mediums.
The 10 x 8 Fortuity prints are produced with archival ink on glossy paper and are perfect for those of you who prefer to frame your art.
The ready-to-hang Fortuity canvas prints are produced with archival ink on museum-grade, gallery-wrapped canvas and extend 1.25 inches off the wall, so there's no need for a frame. There are several sizes available and each limited-edition giclee is signed and numbered out of only 40 Artist Proofs. Please allow up to three weeks for delivery of canvas prints, as they are custom-built at the time the order is placed.
