Botanical Hide and Seek


Mixed media (Acrylic, cold wax, oil, collage, and graphite) on paper
10″ x 10″

A botanical game of ‘hide and seek’ as the leaves peek out from behind a checkerboard grid of diamonds. I love how the white squares create windows to peer into this magical world.

I created this painting by starting with bright strokes of acrylic paint, which I layered over with colored paper, transfers, and sketches. I finished the work by adding the opaque white cold wax medium to obscure this leafy world.
