Southern River Life - Hidden Treasures
Mixed Media Textiles
26"H x 48"W

"Hidden Treasures" was inspired by the rich Florida river's-edge landscape that is just minutes from my home. It is created with archival acrylic paints and mediums on fabric. The images are created through a combination of monotype printing, direct painting. I enjoyed creating an environment in which the wildlife is not immediately apparent-- just as it is in the natural landscape.

Patterns of machine stitching highlight sections of the work. (Zoom in to see the textures!)

This work is mounted on birch plywood and framed from the back: your work will display approximately 2" away from the wall with a clean, wrapped edge.
