This painting is on four 12x12x2 inch canvases. The 2 inch depth makes for a dramatic wall presence. The flowers are heavily textured with a mixture of acrylic heavy gel and modeling paste.
The ribbon around the edges is painted with gold metallic acrylic and the center background is painted with bronze metallic. These metallic touches are highly transparent and are only visible as the light glances off as you walk by the painting.
