"Wilderness Volunteers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created in 1997 to organize and promote volunteer service to America's wild lands. We work with public land agencies including the National Park Service, the Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the US Fish and Wildlife Service."
I love and appreciate America's incredible National Parks. Since the American landscape plays such a huge part in my work and it is so dear to my hear, donating one of my landscape mosaics to the cause seemed only natural, To the left is "Landscape V" the mosaic available on Wilderness Volunteers Online Auction. A lot of neat outdoor related items and vacation spot and retreats are listed on the page - it is worth checking out and it supports a great cause!
The mosaic is created in stained glass and measures 3" x 6". It has an inner and an outerframe double to protect the glass from damage. The outer frame is made in oak, stained walnut and finished in a semi-gloss polyurethane. (For reference - All of the work on this website is framed similarly either in oak or in pine, stained in various earthy tones.) With the frame the piece measures 4"x7".
Here you can see the back of the art work. It is signed, dated and ready to hang! The starting bid is very minimal - this is a great opportunity to acquire a handmade item and to support the effort to maintain the beauty and order of our National Parks.
