Women Artists of the Finger Lakes Entry

My "Winter Owl" pressed flower framed art has been accepted by the Women Artists of the Finger Lakes: A Contemporary Show & Sale May 29 -- June 1, 2014.  This event is hosted by the First Congregational Church in Canandaigua, NY.

The owl was created primarily from alstroemeria and crocosmia lucifer petals.  The sky was "painted" with different shades of white poplar leaves.  For the foreground, I used multiple layers of melaleuca bark which I harvested from a “shedding” tree earlier this year. This bark has many, many layers with different colors ranging from off white to dark brown.  The brown bark on the tree also came from the melaleuca tree.  Additional botanicals include brown lily leaves, pompas grass blossoms, evergreen, cosmos, banana peel and hydrangea.  This piece was vacuum sealed and framed with 99% UV acrylic.

It has been framed and matted to 16" x 20". While it did not sell at the Women Artists of the Finger Lakes show and sale, I sold it to a wonderful couple at the July 5-6 CAVAC show in Cazenovia.  It will reside in Florida. 

Prints (11" x 14") and 6" x 6" trivets are available.
