During winter, Lake Tahoe is famous for its ski resorts and snow-capped mountains and draws travelers from across the world. When adventure lovers aren’t out in the snow, they’re exploring the marvelous collections at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. Fans of Michael Parkes art will be ecstatic to find the artist’s work showcased at the gallery.
The artist conjures a fascinating landscape of mythical creatures and beings that appear incredibly lifelike through his art. In Lion Song, a pair of felines bask in the hypnotic melody played on the aulos. The haunting music fills the atmosphere with palpable energy and a purity that tames even the most ferocious of beasts.
Parkes encapsulates the emotion and raw beauty of this print on vellum through velveteen shades of ivory and cream. Notice how the lines blur ever so slightly to create a dreamy finish against the translucent paper.
Like other vellum prints by the artist, Lion’s Song has the power to enhance the aesthetics in any room. It’s what makes Parkes’ work highly coveted by private collectors, high-end establishments, and celebrities.
