This is an original marquetry wood inlay depiction of Torrey Pines State Beach in Del Mar California. This piece is #3 of 25 original artworks created simultaneously from different woods. Employed in the production of this work are veneer from about 18 species of trees either individually stained with tinted shellac or left in natural wood tones, cut piece by piece and painstakingly assembled and laminated to a 3/4” plywood substrate before being varnished under three coats of UV-inhibiting Artresin’. The piece is signed in the wood, veneered on the edges and comes with nice sturdy French Cleat hanging hardware. All sides of this piece are sealed..
I've been working for about 5 years to develop my skills to be able to make this marquetry wood inlay depiction of this place I consider so unique and special. The Torrey Pines trees along the upper ridgeline only grow in two places in the world both of which are here in California:) Mac Hillenbrand
