Floral fantasy II


24x48
Acrylic painted paper collage over burlap on wood panel 2 3/4" deep

The inspiration for this painting was found in crewel embroideries. That ancient free form style of embroidery is my favorite.  Shapes are so free and fairy taleish, and perfect for exploring.
The hardest part was  cutting the shapes out of the paper, and then gluing them to the already painted burlap background. Painting it was really fun. I'm planing to continue the series.
