Artist's description:

This 2d mixed media artwork is created with multiple layers. The 10” x 20” canvas is wrapped with black velvet ribbon around the edges of the 2” deep canvas. The background is ivory, handmade paper with a gold, metallic floral pattern. The paper is sealed for water-resistance. The toucan’s wings and beak are collage and the remainder of the bird is created with acrylic paint. The branch, which wraps over the velvet ribbon edge, is created with 3 types of handmade paper and is layered with mica flakes to add a bit of sparkle.

This bird and his floral background remind me of the British Colonial style of the West Indies. I can almost feel a warm breeze when I look at him.

Materials used:

acrylic paint, collage, handmade paper, velvet, mica
