Artistic Explorations: Mixed Media (4)

It wasn't long after I published my last article that summer turned suddenly into winter. Last week we had about 15 cm of snowfall! Luckily it didn't take too long to melt but because the snow was so wet and heavy, some flowers had been crushed. Not for the hardy Scottish bluebell, thank goodness. I just love this flower especially when they completely cover the forest floor to create a purple carpet.

A while ago I created this mixed media painting inspired by the first photograph. I used special paper to create the tree trunks and combined that with acrylics on a canvas panel, 40 x 15 x 3.5 cm.
