Joy of First Bloom

Mixed-Media Painting

Created by Lynne Feldman
On a peaceful evening under a full moon a woman dances joyously amidst the Rowen trees with two chickens, a cat and a rabbit for company. Perhaps they are all celebrating the end of winter and the first blooms of spring. Blue, green, orange and yellow dominate this magical painting. This work is a fabric collage with acrylic paint on gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides. The composition is first sketched onto the canvas with charcoal. Next, beautiful patterned fabrics are cut and glued onto the canvas, followed by a final overlay of acrylic paints.
