Original Artwork by Lynn Peterson.

Lynn Peterson is a world-renowned miniature artist who works in gouache & oils to create gorgeous works of true art for us.  Each pen, depending on medium & subject, takes upwards of 8-12 hours to paint by hand.  Lynn starts with nothing but a plain metal pen, fine paints & brushes, & her 30+ years of miniature painting experience to produce these works. 

1 of 1 Limited Original

Though Lynn works on larger numbered series of pens, being a true artist at heart, she loves to create rare & impressive 1 of 1 original works as seen here.  Lynn tells us these original masterpieces are where she "can spread her wings" & let her creative hand paint freely.

Horse chestnut planted by George Washington circa 1794.

During the last years of his life, George Washington planted 13 horse chestnut saplings in Downtown Fredericksburg, VA & named them for the 13 original colonies.  The last remaining tree, the Georgia Tree, was felled in 2004 & preserved.  From that same Georgia Tree we created the body of this Washington-inspired piece.

This pen is delivered in our gift box as a fountain pen (with ink), rollerball converter, & with a certificate signed by the artist.  As always, our pens are created, start-to-finish, in America.
