Wormwood & Asphodel - Original Painting

635.00

An original oil painting created for the Month of Love 2018 challenge, week one: "Black."

'Potter!' said Snape suddenly.  'What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?'

-Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, J.K. Rowling

In both folk traditions and the Victorian Language of Flowers, these plants hold deep significance: 

Wormwood : "The bitterness of absence."

Asphodel (a type of lily) : "My regrets follow you to the grave."

The painting is mounted in a vintage metal frame, originally made in Italy.  (The frame has natural patina & discoloration from age.)

Medium: oil on paper, mounted on board.

Painting size: 6.5 x 5 inches.

Painting in frame size: 10 x 7 inches.
