|"Show Off", 6" x 6", oil on mixed media, Sold|
I painted this butterfly in oils over a background of many layers of paper and acrylic. As bright as acrylic is, the oil is so much more beautiful and bright. I've used this frame to see how striking this piece could look in a black frame.
I finally realize why I love this style so...my dad was a housepainter and I saw this background many places as a child....dropcloths, old work shoes, paint pots, old wood...ahhhh the memories of childhood making its way back into my heart.
