This little collage-painting was created using a selection of some of my favourite hand-decorated papers and artist’s quality acrylic paints and inks.
It depicts a vibrant pinky-red geranium in a freshly painted pot – most likely a re-purposed feta or olive oil tin. The tin is placed for maximum effect, in front of a textured whitewashed wall.
A mixture of collage and painting techniques, created on 300 gsm watercolour paper, Geranium in a Turquoise Pot has been carefully sealed with a couple of layers of clear artist’s medium.
This original painting measures 12 x 12cm (4.75 x 4.75″) and comes with a bright white mount measuring 23 x 23 cm (9 x 9″).
The mount fits a standard 23cm square frame so you should have no trouble finding a suitable frame.
Geranium in a Turquoise Pot was part of a series of 100 paintings I recently completed on the theme ‘Inspired by Greece’, in which I explored my favourite Greek themes using a variety of techniques.
The painting could easily be hung as part of a group of small paintings with others from this series as many of them complement each other. It also looks great displayed on its own, either on the wall or on a small easel.
