Silverpoint Originals

Silverpoint, a commonly-used medium during the Renaissance, involves making marks with a pointed rod of silver on specially-treated paper or board. Rods of other types of metal – gold, copper, lead or platinum – will also make marks but silver, in particular, has traditionally been favored because as it tarnishes, the pale gray lines become darker & the entire drawing takes on a unique character. Linda supports her silverpoint drawings with pale washes of watercolor & touches of gouache.

The mats & frames for her silverpoint drawings have been carefully chosen to enhance their beauty. For this reason, all silverpoint drawings are sold matted & framed.

This jaunty mushroom was found growing in Linda’s lawn one summer over the dead roots of an old silver maple. The shape & texture of the cap were irresistible!

This group of mushrooms also grew over the roots of the long-departed silver maple. And once again, all the charm comes from the shape & texture of the little “hats.”
