Dahlia Garden is a12x12x 2 inch mixed media painting on canvas.
Glorious, extravagant dahlias - so lush, diverse and colorful - are always a reminder that the earth is filled with magic. This little goldfinch is taking a moment to stop and appreciate his good fortune. Lots of love went into each stroke of this painting as I tried to capture the many nuances of color in these gorgeous blooms.
Flowers include 4 different kinds of dahlias and one small echinacea!
The mixed media layers of this painting include pages from a French romance novel, pages from a fairy tale, original monoprints, handmade Nepalese paper and other snippets of papers from my travels.
Signed & titled on reverse and fitted with wire to hang on the wall without a frame.
