Acorn, sprouting. Acorns are not just for the squirrels and blue jays! They are a nutrient dense and sustainable food for humans, too. What is required to eat them is leaching, to rinse the tannins from the meat of the nut, and there are various methods that may be used to accomplish this. Help insure enough food for our descendents' futures by planting some oak trees where you live. Make sure to research which species of oak which will grow in your area produce acorns best suited for human consumption (you're looking for a balance between less tannins and more mass.)
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb
Original painting from the Ephemera calendar series (2016-2018). Black walnut ink and pen on paper. Approx 9.5 " x 12.5".
For a limited time!!! WHOLESALE FRAME OPTION:
If you would like to upgrade your purchase to the framed piece, for a limited time I'll be offering a flat 80$ framing fee. This is a wholesale framing price; I will use my local framer's chop shop for artists to frame the work for you before shipping. After adding this painting to your cart, find the "80$ Frame" item in my shop, and add to your cart.
If you do not elect the 80$ frame option, piece will ship flat, unframed, between board.
