table paintings


Explanation:
Quite a rare form of art.

Sandra Elliot-Cortes

Most paintings are viewed hung on a wall, but a scene of your choosing can be painted of any size of 4 to 12 canvas covered panels. Placed together they form a scene, like pieces of a puzzle and are viewed laying flat on a table. Separated the larger sizes (11"x14" or 12"x16")
become place mats for a dining room table, and the smaller sizes (4"x5" or 4"x6") become coasters for a coffee table. Varnished on both sides, they are completely waterproof. The painting of a rose garden is an example of
six, 12"x16" panels placed horizontally to form the scene. Separated they can be used as place mats. Matching napkins are hand painted with a motif of roses from the larger scene. The third image shows six panels, 4"x6" of a coral reef used as coasters.
