The Singing Sirens
Out of stock
Singing posts - the Sirens. I was thinking of the Greek legend of Hercules and the singing Sirens. It is acrylic skins, paper flowers, dried flowers. The themes of all the four artworks are celebrating Spring and recyclables used for gardens and art.
About the Artist
For many years I have painted rejected fence posts to recycle them and put them in gardens for landscape decorations. The paintings I do this year are done in oils and acrylic mixed together on the canvas. They are mixed media. I take no stick parchment and use acrylic paint the different shapes and colors. Then when dry I peel the subject matter off the parchment, and then lay it on the canvas that has an oil painting background and lay it on the canvas to give it a three dimensional effect. With the coming of Spring I was thinking of flower gardens for three of the fence posts and one picture I used crushed pop cans and some of them I used paper or dried flowers or painted my own flowers. The acrylic skins after they're dry I apply to the canvas with the oil painted background. I use alot of found objects for my paintings.
