Another small but beautifully intricate artwork.
The photo at the bottom is a found image from the 1970's of garden peacocks. I adore the idyllic feeling the photograph produces, so I've elaborated this sense further by adding small painted sections of concentric circles which each contain brightly coloured orange poses of flowers. All of these circles are adorned by a green foliage, each with intricate bright orange hand stitching. The top of the artwork features an eccentric sunshine, with one thin, yet poignant sunbeam heading straight down towards the earth. At either side of the sun are two 'peacock plants', gazing up at the sun. Photosynthesis at its best!
Paradise Lane took two whole days to complete. It's a follow on from 'Peacock Plants Gazing at the Sun' which I made in 2015. There's another one on the way too!
This piece is cheaper than works in the same style and of the same size due to the less work and time involved in making this one.
Canvas board is very thin board, and this artwork will need to be framed.
Vintage photography from 1970's (estimate), gouache paint, inks & pencil on paper then mounted onto the canvas board, fabrics & stitch mounted onto the canvas board
