Sunshine on a round green bottle with this drooping, hanging on orchid was my inspiration. I painted it from life using fluid, thick paint and a combination of palette knife and brushwork. This painting has portions from Golden Book Encyclopedia embedded in it as well as bits from a vintage dictionary and a map. The collage elements are easier to see by clicking for a bigger view. Using collage is a way of including different thoughts and viewpoints through the text and images from other people. It reminds me that the world extends beyond my little studio.
12" by 12" mixed media painting on gallery wrapped canvas with 3/4" edge painted white, wired and ready to hang without a frame. Would look great with a frame too.
Thank you so much for looking!
