Rainbow Vines with Flowers
mixed media (acrylic and paper)
24″ X 24″ on cradled birch panel
Rainbow Vines with Flowers is a painting made in the negative. Colorful strips of paper are collaged for the base layer of the canvas. Then all but the vines are covered with white paint leaving the bright, unpainted paper to become the focal point. I love how the raised texture of the collaged paper is still visual under the white paint.
