"Hybrid Rapture"

24" by 36" acrylic, pastel drawing and collage on gallery cradled wood panel with 1.5 inch edge painted a neutral darker green. As always, I have a protective varnish to insure this artwork is around without fading. Wired and ready to hang without a frame.


I'm pretty obsessed with the form of the curly leaved hybrid chrysanthemum which is what the main image is based on. The drawn blue image on the graph paper is a plant called "Blessed Thistle" and was commonly used during the Middle Ages to treat the bubonic plague and as a tonic for monks. I got this image from one of my favorite copyright free resource books called "Handbook of Plant and Floral Ornament from Early Herbals."


In this painting I used thick and thin paint and layers of collage and drawing to create a sense of space that has some breathing room to it. It has a lot to draw you in and discover anew with each time you look at it but there is a harmony and peacefulness to the color scheme.
