Door Art: Gathered Beauty

This project was curated by the Lexington Council for the Arts for the exhibit GO OUT DOORS; an outdoor art installation for the public in the city of Lexington, MA. I was commissioned to create something that “evoked a love of nature, or an appreciation of the outdoors.” Thus, this abundant, overflowing gathering of beautiful blooms was fervently created in one weekend. To be exhibited fall 2020, until the snow comes. For sale to benefit Lexington Council for the Arts, with artist receiving commission.

Day 1: priming, laying base colors, applying copper leaf.

 

Day 2: Completion of painting

 

Day 3: Coating with polyurethane for protection and painting the other side with exterior paint and a little surprise in the corner!

And, complete!
