Still Life Collage Painting Whimsical Collage

Quantity: 1 available
Product Description
Just as I was about to put paint on my palette, I noticed that the layers and layers of dried paint already looked beautiful. I peeled it off and used it to create the flowers on this piece. It's an original acrylic painting created on deep edge canvas. The sides have no staples and are painted black, so a frame is not necessary.

This listing is only for the painting shown individually, but I am constantly adding to Fancy's Collection. As you'll see from the group photos, the paintings in this collection look great together! If you'd like to collect more from this collection, have a look through my "Floral Paintings" section for more choices.

I have tried to represent the artwork as close as possible to the real thing, however, colors may vary from monitor to monitor. A small jpeg on a computer can never do justice to a piece of art, so if you like what you see on the monitor, you'll love your piece of art when it arrives on your doorstep.
Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
When I was a little girl, my family would often visit my grandma for the weekend. My favorite memories from those visits are of getting up before everyone else to have breakfast with Grandma on her back porch. She would put the tape recorder on and get me telling silly, imaginative stories.

Soon I'd forget all about the tape recorder, as I told her, "My appetite ran away, so I had to go to the store to buy a new one, but that one just ran away too! Julie's (my older sis) never runs away though. She always eats 2 plates of rice and beans!" or "I gots a boyfriend called Fernando now but he's lots older and he wants to get married!" (I was 4 and he was a MUCH older 5 years old). Grandma's back porch is also where I recorded such infamous songs as "I took a nap! I took a nap! I tooooooooook a nap!...once in my lifetime(repeat chorus...over and over and over!)..." Seriously, I have the cassette tape to this day and it's hilarious.

Grandma's back porch had the most beautiful view of her little back yard, full of every kind of flower you could imagine. I absolutely adored it. After breakfast we would explore Grandma's flower garden. I can still recall holding her hand, as she led me through the flower garden and told me about the various flowers. Sometimes, I even got to pick a few! "Fancy's Collection" is a whimsical reflection of those times.

I throw my heart and soul into each and every piece of the collection and paint with joy, whimsy and carefree abandon, just as I would have when I was Grandma's little girl. I always use bold, cheerful colors and often paint with my fingers. Grandma has been gone for many years, but this collection always keeps her close and has a special place in my heart.
