This picture of Black-Eyed Susans was inspired by a photograph shot by Jan Stoots of flowers from the garden of my sister, Jeannine. I used approximately 12 prints in the development of this piece. The main focal points were then painted with an acrylic paper glaze to accentuate their prominence. These flowers literally jump out of the matte as they are approximately 1” to 1½” deep.
► Please Note: The posted photos may contain multiple pictures of the same item. This is meant to give you as many different views as possible. The purchase price is for one (1) Paper Sculpture only.
The matting is actually faded and enlarged photos of the original picture that have been raised between sections of art foam and pressed overnight so they will dry flat. With the exception of art foam used in the matting, this piece is made entirely of paper and takes about 1½ weeks to complete.
This picture is truly one of a kind. Bending paper distorts the original photo, so by the time I get to the center of the plant or finishing the background, I am applying the leaves and petals free-hand. If I make a second picture from the same original print, it will always be slightly different. The picture sits comfortably on a table or shelf and would also look beautiful on any wall, especially yours!
