Morning Sun is a12x12x 2 inch mixed media painting on canvas.
This little Goldfinch is basking in the morning sun as it warms her wings and reminds her that every day is a gift. Like the goldfinch, the flowers, too, in the garden soak of the sun and the promise of a new day to grow and share their beauty with the world.
Flowers include sunflowers, daisies and peonies in a gold/violet color combination.
The mixed media layers of this painting are a bit special as they include hand-printed monotypes of several of the flowers included in the piece -- one was even printed on the pink paper that originally wrapped the bouquet! Other mixed media elements include pages from a French romance novel, 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.
