Dahlia Petals as Paint

The beauty of the dahlia has captured my imagination. The color wheel is built right in – reds and yellows, purples with white, and all manner of pinks and orange that create a beautiful palette for Painting with Petals.

I discovered a new adhesive. You all know I suffer from adhesions – sometimes getting glued to my own self. This is acrylic medium glossy and I loved it. Some change in the petals occurred after this photo but much less than using a water based adhesive.

It’s going into a frame and will be available at Whatcom Art Market tomorrow morning. An explosion of Fireworks Dahlia
