Ornament is an original mixed media painting being released as part of the 25 Days of Minis for 2018.
Mountain Laurel is the state flower for both Pennsylvania and Connecticut. I love the delicacy of the star shaped flowers and the adorable little balloons of the buds before they open. While the bees love this plant, it is only used ornamentally by growers as it is toxic and even honey made from it carries the toxins on.
Created on a 6″x6″ wood panel, this one of a kind artwork was handmade by Alecia Miller through a process of layering in the background and utilizing the transparency of the paints to achieve the light and airy feel of the final painting.
The artwork has been sealed with a protective varnish and is mounted in a black wood frame, ready to display in your home.
Artwork from this series will ship priority mail in the continental United States with a flat shipping/handling rate of $10.
