A Springtime Celebration: Bottlecap Collaged Flower Painting

For me, artwork inspired by the beauty of springtime is all about color: vibrant sky blue, vivid new growth green, and sprinkles of crocus purple, bold orange, sunbeam yellow, and rich pink. And my favorite part of spring is the explosion of flowers in my garden.

In this trio of works, I started with canvas board and painted a background of blue and green. I added canvas flower shapes topped with bottle caps attached with heavy gel medium. I drew abstract flowers in Adobe Photoshop and printed them out onto thick paper, cut them out with a punch and glued them into the beer caps with matte medium.

Two of the collages have green floral wire for flower stems with leaves made from paper clay and painted green. The other piece uses green twine from the dollar store for the stems with folded and cut masking tape for leaves.

I covered the entire surface of all three canvasses with Liquitex pouring medium for a shiny, glassy finish to reflect the brilliance of spring.

This was a really fun project, with a happy, cheerful result! These paintings will be available for sale at the Bellefonte Art Gallery soon.
