Heliotropes at Midnight

Acrylic collage

This vertical composition of sunflowers continues to fascinate me. It is my favorite flower — a showy, bright flower, in endless varieties! These blooms are from my garden last year, teamed up with a striped cloth bought at the farmers market. For the sake of design, the cloth is altered, emphasizing the flowers. The textured papers are hand-painted, and part of the purple-hued cloth is actually the frottage technique using oil pastels with acrylic paint on top of it. Lately I have been experimenting with other ways of applying paint to the papers.
