Wednesday Wellspring: Merv And Dolores

Bubbling up from the well this week, is Merv And Dolores! This RNESTer is offering the winner's choice of one Merv And Dolores Matted Art Print! The print is of an original 5"x7" piece of Merv And Dolores artwork. Heather, the artist behind Merv And Dolores, created this original artwork on smooth hot press high quality Aquarelle Arches watercolor paper. She used pen and ink, acrylic ink and coffee to stain the paper. This print is printed on heavyweight 61lb matte finish paper using pigment-based ink, which means it will last 100+ years without fading. Each finished piece is matted with a single white mat with an 8"x10" outer measurement. This means you can place it in any ready made frame of your choice. Artwork will be signed and dated on the back (or the mat if you prefer).

You can find Heather and her wonderful creations around town over the next few months:

  • Saturday, April 2nd, 9:30am-3:00pm: First Baptist Church of Penfield, 1862 Penfield Road, Penfield NY 14526
  • Saturday, May 14th, 10:00am-4:00pm: The Arts & Crafts Fair at St. John of Rochester in Fairport to support the Sutherland Art Club
