Neohelix Snail, oil painting, print on canvas 12x12 in.
Aleta has always loved land snails, so she jumped at the chance to paint this handsome little creature in oils for a biologist friend who studies snails - and Neohelix in particular, a favourite of both the artist and her patron. Aleta's eye misses nothing. Her patient brush strokes reveal intimate details of the snail and its habitat, and draw you into the mysterious world of the forest floor, where there is still lots to be discovered. This canvas print is sure to make a statement in any space. It's hand-stretched on a poly-cotton blend canvas with a matte finish coating. • Fade-resistant • 20.5 mil-thick poly-cotton blend canvas • Hand-stretched • Hand-glued solid wood stretcher bars • Matte finish coating
