Look What I Found: Flowers!

Amy's Roses

for Mixed Media Monday and Crazy Amigos

Take one found board, add an old map, dictionary pages, and acrylic "skins" peeled off my palette, and you get "Amy's Roses." If you'll change your Zoom to 200, you'll get a better idea of the depth of texture in this painting.

I spent yesterday being inspired at The Dogwood Festival in Atlanta. It was about 75 degrees and absolutley gorgeous. Pictures to follow soon!
