Mariposa is a mixed media painting (oil, cold wax, and graphite) on a cradled wood panel. The sides of the panel are waxed and does not need to be framed when hung, unless the collector chooses to frame the paining. I would recommend a floating frame. Mariposa is Spanish for butterfly.

Rebecca Sobin is a contemporary abstract artist who divides her time between the Rocky Mountains of Montana and the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. She self-describes as both an artist and a science geek and considers these two aspects of her life as being a cross-pollination, each perfectly balancing the other.
Sobin holds her Master's and clinical Doctorate in Chinese medicine. After years in both higher education (professor and clinical dean) and seeing patients in the clinical setting, she fnally retired from medicine to fully focus on her painting. The journey to deeply delve back into her art went through several incarnations – musician, poet, photographer, and watercolorist – all leading to the abstract work she embraces today.
All her current collections of work are created using layers of primarily oil and cold wax on cradled, wood panels, however Sobin considers her work as mixed media, as many techniques and mediums are combined to create her Abstract-expressive paintings.
Sobin sometimes feels as if she is making up for lost time, and although she has not spent a lifetime focused solely on her artwork, she has already participated in many group and juried shows and is represented by seven galleries across the western states. She is a member of American Women Artists, The Montana Pastel Society, The Artist Alliance (Santa Fe), and the Tubac Center of the Arts (AZ).
She considers home-base as anywhere her husband, dogs, and studio are located.
