Garden of Delights

Rainbow Vines with Flowers paintingThis weekend is the last chance to see my artwork at the Garden of Delights exhibition at the Plaxall Gallery.

I have a couple paintings in the show including “Rainbow Vines with Flowers”. This painting came about from a dream where I was walking through a thick fog and suddenly stumbling onto a magical, tactile garden uncertain if it is real or of my imagination. I decided to make it real. The painting was made in the negative. I started with covering the entire surface with paint and colorful strips of paper. When that was done, I painted the background in white leaving the under layers of paper to create the leaves and flowers. My favorite part is the heavily textured surface of the painting created from the overlapping layers of paper.
