Unsuspected Surprise ~ Tall Poppies"

"Tall Poppies"

This is now offered under my gallery category "Unexpected surprise"  You can read about unexpected surprises in my blog or right under the heading.  This is only an option for a short time and only on Artspan!

This is for those that follow and have been fabulous supporters of my work.  "Tall Poppies" is still on my site for those who are unaware of this gallery, and still at regular price.  But you never know how long I will keep this in "Unexpected Surprises" before I remove it. Enjoy

"Tall Poppies", is a acrylic/mixed media painting on a 12" x 24" x .75" stretched canvas.  These started with my interested in a dirty pour/swipe technique, but wanting to take it further.  I have done a number of these, but added more manipulation of the paints to create my effects.

I started a blog, which explains the technical and some of the emotional aspects of my work.  I do explain this type of work on my blog: nancybossert.blogspot.com.  Decided to go with poppy flower which is a favorite of mine and a tapestry look.  I used collage to create the poppies and gold linear work.  
Followed up with three layers of satin glaze sanding in between each.  
This is a lot of color for me, but it has some majolica in the patterns and how they compliment.

Enjoy, Nancy

I did complete a figurative piece working this way, "Dreams", which is also shown in steps on my blog.  I have a second female figurative that I am
now working on.

A plus with this size canvas "Tall Poppies" is it can be easily framed, no glass.  Where the deeper canvases look fine unframed or in floater frames.
