Red Velvet


Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.
Signed on the back.

Some flowers have a smooth texture, or a not so pleasant one. I found this one on the side of the road hanging over a fence and immediately took a photo. I have not been able to find the name of said flower. However when I felt it – it was so soft like velvet. So I decided to imbue it with numerous experiences before we encountered each other and I decided to put it on a pedestal! The different patterns that I inscribed on it are to represent the many experiences all living organisms encounter on their stay here on planet earth. It can be hung anywhere in the house and has a bright cheerful appearance. I have used acrylics as the first layer then followed with oil and mixed media.
