What is this ODD texture on hand painted mural/table?
I am curious about the peculiar (to me, anyway) texture in the painting of of this hand painted table. The table is wood, of course, but the paint has a sort of dappled texture that would seem to indicate that the painting was done atop another surface which was applied to the table.
Does this indicate that a canvas was applied to the table's surface, or does that texture come by some other means? That "texture" is not present on the underside of the table.
I invite guesses on its age too, though I am less concerned with that because I like the aesthetics. When you look at it in person, you can see and even feel the brush strokes in the flowers. Also, there is no signature. And again, there is none of this texturing anywhere on the table except on the top surface painting.
This second photo shows a closeup of the peculiar texturing. In the first photo you can see why I considered this a STEAL for only $50.
