Nature Medley One
acrylic paint, paper, and ink
4″ x 6″ image (8″ x 10″ matted and framed behind plexiglass)
Nature Medley One is the first of a pair of companion paintings. It is a soothing abstract nature collage painting depicting the serene tones of wood, wool, and leaves.
Patterns and textures are all around us. The nubby surface of a knitted sweater and the smooth feel of granite tile are but two examples. I have blended together my favorites in striped vignettes of natural and man-made objects. The neutral color palette holds the elements together, while their contrast of shapes and textures adds interest in every stripe.
