Flower of the Field is a 24" x 24" original art mixed media painting with a lot of history and texture. It contains drawing, pencil lines, wax, and antique paper collage. It is an autobigraphical painting with drawings of my hands, letters from friends, and a photo of my great grandfather reading to his mother.
The title comes from the book of Psalms 103:15 "As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field." I was thinking about the fragility, brievity, and beauty of life.
Cradled 1.5" deep on a wooden panel Flower of the Field is ready to hang or frame.
