5x7 Oil on Porcelain


Billups use to go to Mountain Man Rendezvous and experienced a lot of great times. As in the other section with mountain men head studies on this web site, she also photographed many awe inspiring moments...such as this one. During this same time, she also used to go to Pinedale WY, where they would have mountain man events, celebrating that era of the U.S.history.

These mules where at one or the other! At this point in time...cannot recall which one!

This was created in oils on a fine porcelain sheet, by the same company that creates the extremely large and thick tiles that NASA uses on the outside of the Space Shuttle, for heat protection. These small, fine quality porcelains, however, are made for circuit boards for computer controlled products (well, they use to, back in the '80s...pretty sure they no longer do. What she has in stock will probably be the end of these creations, thus making them an excellent investment...if "rarity" is one of the points in qualifying something as "valuable"!!!

They are extremely fine quality, and very durable. The oil that the images are created with, is very stable, since the tiles are porous, thus accepting the pigment into it's surface, making a permanent binding.

The rich and intense quality of the colors in these creations have little to do with the porcelain itself, but solely to the artist's ability and vision. It does take special handling of the pigment, for once a color is placed on the porcelain, it is very likely to stain the surface, and thus damage the final outcome.

As far as the artist's knowledge, there is no one else in the country that is creating images of this caliper and design, on these fine quality porcelain plates.
