Early Spring - Daffodil Series - Mixed Media Collage & Acrylic on Canvas
These elegant daffodils were created by Metro Detroit fine artist Shadia. She began with a background surface in shimmering metallic hues of deep magenta and vibrant green. Using acrylic, colorsafe spray paints, she added texture and pattern. Next, the artist created a delicate underpainting of each daffodil. Using a selection of hand painted found collage papers, tissues, discarded sewing patterns and scrapbook papers, Shadia painstakingly collaged each blossom as well as a portion of the background. The result is a simple composed yet dynamic painting in complementary hues of reddish-purples and and yellow, with subtle texture and pattern, and a glimmering surface of metallic paints.
Each daffodil measures 9"x9" and is painted on luxuriously deep 2.25" museum canvas. The surface is coated with a gloss UV top coat to preserve the colors and protect against fading. The edges of this panel are painted black and ready for display - no need for framing.
