I’ve been making art for about ten years now. To say it’s been an evolution is an understatement. What I make changes so very much, and sometimes often!! I’ve never done a great job with painting specific things that exist in real life, so when I found an online class (https://www.amandaevanstonlearning.com) to take where I would learn to make beautiful abstract-ish flowers, I was all over it. I took the class and already bought a second one.
I continue to apply what I learned in the first class to what I make, but I still like to use the class (and instagram videos which is where I learned about these wildflowers) as an influence and not replace my own style with it. This group of poppies / wildflowers seems to do that as a mix of the abstract flower style and my glass / resin style.
The paintings were a commission to be given as teacher appreciation gifts. 16 of them!! They are on 3×9 wood panels and are coated with resin including some glass accents. You can see the reflection of the resin in the shiny pictures. For this group, I lined up all 16 then painted them like one big paintings. You could consider the 16 of them together as a puzzle :).
