My original artwork is 8×8 and is a double-sided piece (I had it weighed at the U.S.P.S. and it weighs exactly 1lb). I have shown the stencil in its original form on the flip side of the canvas. I was inspired to create a "dream" garden window where I painted the stencil using acrylic paints over the Mylar and adhered them using beeswax as glue. Then I painted the gallery mount as if it were window trim. On the front, I deconstructed the stencil using half of it as the sun and some of the stencil petals as shrubbery and the inside of the stencil as a flower (seen in close-up). The stencil petals were used to create a near replica using joint compound (upper left of front side).
This mixed media work consists of acrylic paints, cloth, paper, beeswax, joint compound, india ink, rubber stamps & sharpie markers.
