Pen and ink drawing of a poison dart frog
1 / 2
Artwork for the person who likes different things!
This piece is an original, one of a kind ink stippling of a poison dart frog. It is comprised entirely of ink dots: no lines or fill-in shading was used. I used black, green, yellow, and blue inks.The wood is reclaimed oak from a farm in Kentucky. It is approximately 15" x 7.5" (at its greatest height) x 1" and fits nicely on an easel (not included). This would make an excellent gift for the lover of exotic things! All of my pieces are created on reclaimed wood, upcycled into an original piece of art.The poison dart frog is native to Central and South America. These species are diurnal and often have brightly-colored bodies. Levels of toxicity vary considerably from one species to the next and many are critically endangered. These amphibians are often called "dart frogs" due to the Amerindians’ indigenous use of their toxic secretions to poison the tips of blowdarts.
