my heart sings in color


my heart sings in color
mixed media collage on
9" X 9" X 3/4" aspen wood
copyright 2008 julie king



as promised, here are the hollyhocks!



this piece is unique in that i added a little dowel rod
to the back of the wood to make it self-standing.



the 9" x 9" size is perfect for displaying on a sofa table or bookshelf.
it will ship wrapped in my signature handmade wrapping paper
and with a gift tag. it's for sale in my etsy shop.

hope everyone had a great weekend!
peace, love, joy . . . and goodnight!

Beautiful piece and flowers. I love how you did the dowel rod on the back and even covered it with paper too.

The background of this piece is such a sweet blue-grey. It is a beautiful artwork altogether. I really must go and check out your Etsy offerings. That is a great line: "My heart sings in colour"
