A still life of red roses in a soft pastel pink red pallet. This is a monotype, or monoprint, using watercolor ink, by contemporary artist Karin Sanborn (born 1966) and signed. It is of exceptional detail. Mounted in a large matt and in a fine frame.

Image 12 by 18"; frame 26.5 by 36.5". Very good condition with no stains, in the original frame also in good condition.

A very decorative and unusual still life.

For a monotype, or monoprint, the artist renders (paints) the color image on a smooth transfer surface and then impresses it onto paper. The colors are "repainted" for each print, so that every print is somewhat different. Due to the process, the pictures usually have a slight abstract quality. This particular one has exceptional detail for monoprint. Also, the gradual transitioning of color from red through shades of pink on the petals is hard to achieve in the process.
