PATCHWORK, 9116, abstract floral collage by Carol Nelson © Carol Nelson Fine Art
Surprise!!!! More poppies. Of course, it's no surprise that I'm painting my favorite flowers again. The fun part of this painting was coming up with different treatments for the various rectangles in the composition. It turned out to be much more difficult than I thought it would be.
Some of the rectangles were two or three different colors or surface treatments before I was done. I suppose I could have worked it all out on paper before I started, but that would be too methodical for me - my inner child likes to play with the materials. The larger central gray/brown rectangle has actually two layers of rice paper on it.
The vertical and horizontal lines are straight. The camera slightly distorts the lines so they look slightly bent. Also, the metal leaf between most of the rectangles doesn't show well.
This 36x24 inch painting comes with it's own black floater frame. For purchase information, please see my website.
