sing – mixed media collage, 8X8 inches
I heard the wee bird singing.
My intent was to capture summer moments at my grandmother’s house when my cousins and I were very small. Our mothers would take pictures of us in a seemingly endless field of daisies. Later in life, I carried on the tradition and took pictures of my own girls among the same field filled with daisies.
Materials: The texture on this piece is subtle. It is an original mixed media painting that began with images of flowers from an upcycled seed catalogue. The painting also includes a flyleaf from a vintage book, and sheet music from the 1800s. The text is from a vintage book of poetry. Acrylics, photo transfers, and watercolours are part of the many layers.
The substrate is a wood panel consisting of a 3 mm birch surface cradled on a 1.5" thickness gallery wood frame. The painting has been sealed with a satin finish to ensure protection against fading, discolouration, and moisture. Signed on reverse. The sides are painted black so it’s ready to hang (no framing required) or to display on a shelf, bureau, piano, etc. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
