Flower photo collage art decorMixed media flower art

I try and capture the beauty of flowers just as they are beginning to fade. I love dried flowers and their dusty colors. I took photographs of a flower basket outside my front steps and digitally manipulated the images. I then tore the images up and reassembled elements from the photographs, filling in the gaps with paint and line drawings.

I like the painting to simultaneously work on two levels: an abstraction and representation. Breaking apart the illusion of the photography of something real and then reassembling it with new meaning.
