Mixed Media Collage & Acrylic on Canvas
This beautiful piece features orchids I photographed at the Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids. I initially created an underpainting in acrylics, then began layer hand-stamped, stenciled and painted papers. I finished the piece with a UV protective top coat in a glossy finish.
